    My wife and I have known Melinda for many years both as an exceptional worker at Cracker Barrel and as a dear friend. She always had a big smile that simple brighten up any place that she entered. We were completely shocked to hear she had passed. Melinda was truly one special person and she loved her son Jamie (James) so very much. He was indeed her world. We still can’t imagine she is gone now. I will miss you dear friend but you are gone to a better place with that beautiful heart, smile an love for people. May the grace of our Lord be with the ones that you have left behind. Our Lord has said, your mission on earth is done and now he has even a greater mission for you in heaven. Rest now our friend but please look down on us from time to time with that smile.
