Melanie touched the hearts of all who knew her. She will forever be my sweet Cupcake!
This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved daughter, sister and Cupcake. Melanie had just turned 18 on May 20th and had just graduated from Lakeside High School in Evans GA on Saturday May 23rd. She went to work the following morning and then came home and laid down to take a nap. She never woke up but died peacefully in her sleep. The autopsy report stated that the cause of her death was cardiovascular disease. Melanie was a joy to all who knew her. She lettered in Chorus for all 4 years of school and was a member of HOSA. She loved her LORD and attended Warren Baptist Church. Mel had such a dry witty sense of humor. She loved all animals BIG and SMALL! Melanie was truly the sweetest of any soul I've ever met and I feel blessed to have had her as my very own daughter. Although my MelMel is in Heaven now I take comfort in knowing we will embrace each other once again. Thank you,Lord, for the precious gift that you loaned to me for 18 years. She will forever live in my heart!

"Today 8 years ago we returned your body back to the dust from which it was made. How does time move on so quickly yet seem to stand still at the same time? I imagine that's what it's like for you in Heaven and in no time we shall see each other again. Love you my sweet baby girl"
