Sometimes in life, you find a special friend Someone who changes your life just by being part of it Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world Someone who convinces you that there is an unlocked door waiting for you to open it When you're down and the world seems dark and empty This friend lifts you up in spirit and makes the dark and empty seem bright and full A friend who gets you through the hard times and the confused times If you turn and walk away this friend will follow If you loose your way this special friend will guide you and cheer you on This friend will hold your hand and tell you everything will be OK And if you find such a friend you need not worry because what you have is a Forever Friend You have a Forever Friend for life and forever has no end.

I have lost my Forever Friend but she will always be with me in the precious memories that I have of her.


For Those who knew Melinda as Scouts Honor, she was indeed
a fair and JUST guide in every sense. Her humor was exact, but her
RATH could be total..!
I never really understood her endeaver to be a giude,
maybe she wanted to fit in, or maybe she wanted to entrench
her tournament into Hardwood...
Her efforts and TOP alone
have brought more then 150 players into S.C.E.
Many of which she herself paid for!!!
