Today I was devastated by the news of Melanie’s passing away.
I had No photograph of Melanie so I am using a screenshot of her blog site.
From her site, this is what she said about herself;
I am 62 years of age. I was born, raised, and have lived in Utah my whole life. I have a twisted, rather bitter, and cynical outlook on almost everything. And an opinion. Just ask me, you’ll find out.
I have been fortunate to be able to move to a small town where I plan to live out my remaining years with my dog, Ziggy Stardust.
I am an ‘attendance challenged’ LDS Church member (or Mormon).
I am widowed and have no plans to remarry ever. See the sentences about opinionated, bitter, and cynical as to a clue as to why. I like (maybe love) to write. That’s why I’m here. I hope you enjoy the experience!”
The news of her passing is so sad. I know most of the bloggers knew her in our community. We are all shocked with this unexpected news. I can only say that the news of her peaceful passing is of some consolation to her friends. She was afraid of a prolonged illness and pain that comes with it.
May you rest in peace my dear friend. Amen.
