Dear Mel, Your sudden & tragic departure from us still remains unreal. All us girls will miss you dearly and miss our catch ups, sharing our joys and downs of this rollarcoaster life. My deepest thoughts are with Liz & Phil, Cathy, Pauline and Steve - such a challenging time to say farewell to their loving daughter and sister. Belly is a tower of strength who loved you dearly and contributed to your overall love & happiness that has beamed out from you over the past few years. I will cherish all our moments, teenage years (few stories there!), school days, us growing into the ladies we are now today. Mel, will miss you. Your funeral gave me some comfort knowing you shared your life with so many lovely people and you were living your life you dreamt of. Im positive you would have been laughing to the gorgeous photos of your life that everyone showed at your farewell. You touched many lives. Mel, will miss you and hope that you rest in total peace that you were loved on this earth. Lauren
