We will always remember Melveena fondly. She was a very dear friend of my Mom's (Gerri Fletcher) and much like an aunt to me. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God bless and give you comfort.

Melveena was a co-worker of mine at ITT and a good friend. I always enjoyed our visits. She will be missed. My deepest sympathy to her family on her passing. Unfortunately I am out of town and will be unable to attend her service but will be there in thought.
