    Always loved Melinda, was so glad she reached out to me after all these years. Im going to miss her phone calls. She would always say, she was still a Lindley and I truly agreed. After all the years, it was like none had passed.

    I loved Melinda the first time I met her. She worked at Cooks day care, and cared for my children many years ago. She always loved all children whole heartily. We became good friends in our later years, and I always enjoyed her company. She was always brought a smile, and usually a big ole belly laugh. She was fun, funny,and all around good person. I'm sorry I didn't make the time to go visit her that last year of her life. But I know that one day I will see her again. Rest In Peace Melinda (Beautiful Butterfly) #7
