I am so sorry to hear this.  Melanie and I were very good friends in grammar school - Longino Elementary. I spent many nights sleeping over at her home off Rugby Avenue and visiting with her family.  Her mom was a very sweet lady.  Melanie move away from CPHS when we were in the 9th grade to the Therrell School district.  We communicated several times through email in the last ten years.  She was a kind, gracious person, and I know she will be missed.  RIP sweet Melanie.
