  1. I always thought I would see Ms. Melba again and let her know how important she was in my life.56 years ago she took a little girl from a bad situation and introduced her to Jesus.She taught me how to act,dress and love.Every Saturday night I would get a bubble bath,hair washed and devotion before going to church on Sunday.I’ll never forget her. We laughed and had so much fun.She was a true Christian and my belief in God came directly from her love and care.I know she’s in heaven and her reward is great!
