Tonya, Kim, and families, I have known your Mom most of my life. I have always known her to be a loving, caring, sweet sister to me and our entire family. I am so grateful for the chance to come and see you all this past week. We all are praying for you and are celebrating Melanie's homecoming in Heaven with her Mom and Dad and sister! 1st Peter 1:3-4 says: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can NEVER perish, spoil or fade, KEPT in HEAVEN for you. I know she is singing in the heavenly choir now and she is whole and healed in the name of Jesus!

We love you all so much

Holly and Steve and family and the Konersman clan as well.
