RIP, dear cousin. I have so many fond memories from my childhood of spending time with Melody at Grandma & Grampa's house: catching lightening bugs in the evening, playing hide and seek outside, climbing the cherry tree, eating Grandma's strawberry shortcake. Strength at this difficult time to John, the boys, the grandkids, and Russ, Paula and Karen.
