Yesterday I got this message on one of Melanie’s post;
I don’t know where to post this, so I’m hoping that the message gets passed on to Melanie’s blogging friends. My name is Rachel, and I’m her friend and neighbor. She’s in the hospital again, and it’s really bad this time. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Oh, I’m so sorry to learn of this Rachel. I hope she gets better soon. Thanks for letting us know.
Melanie has been placed on in-patient hospice. She is non-responsive. We are keeping her comfortable until she passes. I hate to have to notify you all in this manner. I just don’t know how else or where else to do it. I will create an online memorial at some point, so everyone can visit it. ❤ ❤ ❤–Rachel
Thank you Rachel. I’ll share your message with our community. My prayers are with her.
Please do keep Melanie in your prayers. I hope she recovers quickly and completely. Amen.
An update from Rachel of Sheep and Sage;
I just got the call that Melanie has passed. She did have an advance directive, and we were careful to follow it. She received very strong meds for pain, nausea, and anxiety. She seemed to be in a deep sleep at the end.
May her soul rest in peace. So sad a day for us all.
