    Rich & Christine, may the Lord be with you at this time at the loss of your daughter. Only He can give true comfort and peace in life’s most challenging moments. We rejoice in the fact that Jesus has conquered death for everyone and has mansions in heaven for all believer’s. “Be thou faithful until death and I will give thee a crown of life”. God bless- Wes & Sharon Andersen

    My heart is absolutely broken. We stood up in each other’s weddings and she was a big part of bringing my children into the world. To know Mel was to love her. She will be deeply missed by the Huertas Family.

    Mel was my teammate for many years. She was smart, intellectually curious, and incredibly patient even when she was under stress. Her kindness and thoughtfulness extended to everyone, as well as her love for her family and her children.

    Melanie will be greatly missed by her family, those who knew her as a friend, or those (like me) worked with her. I am deeply saddened by her passing and hope that Mel’s children, family, and dearest friends will forever remember her gentle spirit and carry Mel in their hearts.

    Chris, I’m so sorry to hear about Melanie! I’m still in shock. She was a wonderful friend, coworker, and all around beautiful person. She will be missed by everyone she touched in her short life. I still smile whenever I hear Bing Crosby singing “Mele Kalikimaka”. She and I would sing it every time it came on. Rest in Peace, Mel. May God Bless your family now and forever.

    My thoughts and prayers to Melanie’s family. I worked with Melanie and truly enjoyed her sweet smile and silly little laugh. Her smiling face always made everyone’s day better. Everytime I hear Mele Kalikimaka I think of her, even now. The Lord has Melanie in his loving arms. Blessings to all.

    A sweeter soul there never was. Im heartbroken by this news. She had such a quiet and calm presence. My connection with her was brief. We worked together on a few projects. The world has lost a kind kind soul.
