My deepest condolences to Mrs. Melba's family. Psalms 46:1 assures us, "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." You can always turn to Jehovah God when you feel sad and miss Melba. He will be there for you.

I will miss Aunt Melba. She has been an important part of my life. A lady called me this morning who went to church in Hinesville, with Aunt Melba. She thought a lot of her and remembers what a hard worker she was at the church. I know Aunt Melba is having the happiest time of her life now in heaven.
