Melody misses you so much. I just wish there was some way that you could tell her things are alright and that it is ok for her to go on with her life. I know how she feels and I try to help her as much as I can. She is in such sorrow. I am sure that she will find a way to know that you will meet again some day. Losing your mom is such a great loss to try and handle on your own.

As time passes on, her daughter still grieves for her mom. She had a large family. Each one grieves in a different way. Sometimes death pulls the family together, sometimes it pulls apart. I am sure Helen would not want them to suffer for she has made a journey to a new life.It is time for them to and start building their own life without her.Her love will carry on forever in your heart.

As the days pass since Helen passed away, her family still grieves for her. In some way she must have touched their hearts for her family shows it. You only get one Mom and when she is gone, it is over in this life and i believe she has started a new journey for her new life. Though you grieve for her every day, i am sure she would not want this. Only to have you rejoice her life. Amen

A friend of Melody. A daughter who loved her mother so dearly and misses her so much. I did not know her Mom but I sort of feel like iI do through Melody's eyes. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. I lost my mom so I understand what you are going through. Do not say goodbye to her. You all will be meet again in Heaven. God Bless you all.

I remember Melody talking about her mom. She was always saying how much she loved her and missed her. Her mom was a very important part  of her life. She did not go to see her mom a lot but the love was always in her heart. I once told melody, It is not forever. You will be reunited with her one day. Carry her in your heart always and no one can ever take your beautiful memories away from you. Just remember her and that Helen loved her. In time things will get better. I plan to meet Helen one one day and know that Melody may be there to introduce us.

In loving memory of Helen.
