    I was a couple of years older than Melinda but we always had a good time when we were together. She was always laughing and loved a good time.
    I’m so sorry for loss of your mom and grandma and my cousin. I’m so glad she’s no longer in pain and laughing in Heaven.

    To the family of Melinda:

    You have our sincere sympathy and prayers. As an older cousin of Melinda I don’t have a lot of memories but as our family did a lot with the Faber’s I do remember her and I also remember buying the Champ from her (through her Dad). Once again we are keeping your family in our prayers.
