I am so sad to hear that Melinda has passed. She was such a wonderful person and a dear friend at Wellesley, where we were Davis Scholars together. We took a landscape and garden architecture course together and I was so impressed with her notebook and how she took notes, in drawings as well as words, and with how she so thoroughly enjoyed learning and life.

My deepest sympathy. Melinda was a wonderful person. We met through our girls at the Jones school. Melinda was so encouraging and supportive. She always had positive encouragement. What a beautiful person inside & out. I will miss her bright beautiful smile.

My deepest sympathy to both Paul and Victoria having to bid goodbye to such a wonderful person. Melinda was a cheerful, thoughtful, and incredibly bright person. I remember when she showed me her little bag containing her medical device one day as we were laughing together and eating tacos. I saw that cute, cheerful looking bag and thought, "how imaginative!" Melinda took every opportunity to make the most of everything and I always admired her for it. She will be dearly missed.

I had the great pleasure to meet Melinda in person only once, but came away from that meeting so very impressed by her. I came to know her even better through conversations Paul and I had when we were able to meet up together. I am so very sorry that she was chosen to leave this life at such a young age, but I know that Melinda will be looking down on Paul and Victoria smiling and guiding them through

As a friend and co-worker to Paul, my deepest most sincere condolences go out to you and Victoria. I always noticed the way you beamed with love and pride whenever Melinda came up in conversation. I, too, feel like you now have an angel as your guide in Melinda. May peace be with you. Sending love and light.

Although I only met Melinda a time or two, I felt like I knew her through Paul, my co-worker and friend. In the brief time I spent with Melinda, I knew she had a kind heart, was strong and driven, and had a great sense of humor. My heart breaks for your family as we can never explain the loss of such a wonderful person at a young age, but have faith that she is watching over you and will
