Melvina was my friend, my sister, my confidant. She lived a holy life of a God filled woman. We were prayer partner's. Melvina had a great effect on people. They were drawn to her spiritually. She was very knowledgeable of the word of God. She had a way with words and was a bold soldier for the Lord who was on a mission to save souls and to help other's come to repentence. Melvina was used by God mightily! She was a true soldier of the cross. Melvina left too soon but will always be missed. She was my sister whom I could talk to and pray with when I needed to get a prayer through. I thank God for the life she lived for Him. Melvina rest in peace until the day of the coming of the Lord. To God be the Glory!
