I loved Melva and enjoyed her Wonder sense of humor,her love of God and warm heart. She is already missed. She saw my brother, who they hadn’t seen each other since they played ball as kids, and she recognized him immediately on her own. The same with me 4 yrs ago, while I was in physical therepy. She sed, ” You’re Esther T. daughter. That was 60+ yrs ago she had seen me last as a kid. Marvoulous memory. Heaven is Brighter now.
