I have known Melba for over 40 years and have fond memories of our working together on several occasions. I shall always remember her for her pleasant personality and likewise remember her for her keen knowledge of her profession. Truly, she was such an asset in many ways to this whole area and will sorely be missed by all that knew her. May God be with you Mike, Greg and your Families during this time of sorrow.
