Mel was a great person and she will be missed. Words cannot adequately articulate my sincerest hope that you have peace and comfort. I am truly sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

Mel was more than a banker for George and I. We met her when we moved to Clermont in 1991. She was an excellent banker and a good friend. We were both dog lovers and owners. We missed her when she left the Clermont office and were delighted to meet up with her again at the new location before she retired. So sorry for your loss. The world has lost a beautiful spirit.
