I enjoyed knowing and working with Melinda. When talking with Melinda, she always had a positive attitude. And a lovely smile.

To Melinda's family, I so enjoyed working with Melinda and becoming her friend at North Texas Hospital. We were quite the gang in the GI lab and pain management hallway. Melinda was one of the best nurses I ever worked with, so competent! I and so many others will miss her dearly! She spoke of you all constantly, I cannot imagine the void in your hearts.

Melinda and I worked together when I first moved to Texas in 1988. Through the years we kept in touch always calling each other to offer jobs wherever we were working. She is one of my favorite nurses and definitely one I admired. We also shared our belief in Jesus and I know she is with Him today. My heart goes out to her family- I know she loved you all very much. As time passes I hope you know what what a blessing she was in all our lives

Her smile would light up a room and she achieved so much during her lifetime . She was special and we know that God has a special place in heaven for her. We will miss her.
