This message was provided by Melanie's family member:
Hi, my name is Karene Freeman and I'm Melanie's older sister. To say that I'm devastated by the sudden lost of my sister is an understatement. Melanie was a light in all of our lives. She was always generous with her time and her love. She has left a void in our family as well as her friends' lives. With occurring mounting expenses surrounding her sudden departure, her family would appreciate all those who loved her to donate what they can to help defray costs. Melanie did that for countless other families in their time of need. So it would honor her and the way that she lived her life if you would assist the Freeman family.
God Bless You All,
