Many prayers will be sent to the family from our family. I'm deeply saddened to hear of her passing. She was a good friend to me when I was at the Hagerstown Post Office. I know she will be greatly missed by all.

Melanie, Little did we know that evening God was to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you The night God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Love, Sherry and Michael
