Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.  I got to know Melanie at the Chamber of Commerce and I enjoyed spending time with her so much.  I appreciated how organized she was when working on the Peach Days Parade.  She put so much time in it and seemed to really enjoy working on the Parade.  She was a wonderful woman and I feel blessed to have met her.
My prayers are with all of the family at this difficult time.

To the Corbett Family

I was so sorry to hear about Melanie.

My heart and my thoughts traveled back to Shelley, Idaho a lot of years ago.

Your family provided some much needed and deserved closeness for our family while we were in Idaho.

I love you all.

Dear Corbetts,

   Please know how shocked and saddened I am to learn of Melanie’s passing.  Even knowing what we know, that death is not the end, but only a separation, a phase, a step; even knowing that, this is such a hard thing to bear.  Melanie is such a special person; such a joy to be around.  My life is richer because I had the privilege of knowing her for so much of her too short life.  You are all in my heart, and in my prayers. 

With much love…always,

 Gus Koernig


May our Heavenly FATHER'S love give your family peace and comfort at this trying time.

Dwight & Linette Butt and Family
