A compilation of interesting and significant obituaries, as they happen, emphasizing the achievements of those who have died.
Melva was one of the sweetest, kindest people I knew. Thanks for adding her portrait on your site for posterity. There is a very interesting story behind this photo. I retouched the photo for her several years back. It was badly scarred by white marks as it had been folded in her memory book for many years. I first published this photo on a website that I was working on for her. We were working on promoting her music, but sweet Melva took the advice of her religious leaders and we never did much with the information she shared with me, or all the wonderful photos she had me copy for her. It was wonderful to see this photo on your blog.
