To the family,
Although I never met Mrs. Hunter, I have come to know her through her beloved son MelJo. I enjoyed listening to the stories MelJo shared about his mother and will forever cherish them. I also learned through MelJo that Mrs. Hunter and my mother shared the same name. Knowing this made me feel even more connected to this family. May you find comfort in remembering the good times you shared. God bless you all.
