I cannot tell you how sorry I am that Melanie is gone. You all have been on my mind and in my prayers. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

My sweet, sweet cousin, I could never have predicted this day. I am beside myself, the only thing that can bring me peace is knowing that Grandma and Grandpa and all of our wonderful aunts and uncles welcomed you with open arms, are comforting you and are showing you the ropes of Heaven. Melanie, you meant so much to me, you knew that, we meant a lot to each other. You were always there for anything I needed and we shared a special bond. Ugh, this is hard and I know I have to accept God's greater plan. I am so blessed to have your imprint on my life. All my love forever, Katie.
