Melinda and I have only known each other for only a few months (8 months) I work in home care at Stoffel for people with disabilities/disorders. She was not one of my clients, but a good friend. We both shared a common interest in classic rock/pop music. She loved playing music on vinyl/turn table. I thought it was super cool that she loved vinyl as much as I do. She was a very quiet soul, but had a huge heart for the people who meant the most to her. I will miss her polite/shy smile whenever we said "Hi" in the hallways at Stoffel. I will also miss her quirky/witty comments/remarks (Out of love) that she made towards her significant other and people who meant the most to her. I will m...iss her sense of humor. She had good life advice. I will miss playing dominos and board games with her. I will miss having tacos at her house. I will miss seeing her wearing really cool patterned leggings and t-shirts. There will be a lot of things that we will all miss about her and we will miss her presence. This is not "Good Bye" but rather this is a "See you again". A friend, Love You Josh & Melinda: Kara Fosdal.Read more
