I was so sorry to hear the news of Melanie's death. There were days in the pharmacy when she made me laugh so hard, I cried! She was also one of the first people I met there, and that first encounter is seared in my memory--I still laugh when I think about it! Please know I'm praying for peace and comfort for all of her family. She was SUCH a good person and I know she will be missed.

I am so sad to hear of Melanie's passing. She was such a lovely person. Even on the days she obviously was struggling with her health, she was cheerful and always had a kind word. It was obvious that she loved her job. She will be missed.
