Melba was always a sweet and very gentle lady! Many times when she and the family spent summers away, she needed folks to take care of her house plants. I was honored to help, always afraid these plants might die in my care before I got to return them to Melba. Knowing her son, Glenn, and always admiring that smile and good nature, was a reflection to his parents. I am sorry for this family's loss. Be strong and be thankful for your full memory pages!
