Condolence & Memory Journal

It's been far too many years, Steve. But my sympathies are with you and your family. I tried to get up to the viewing, but family obligations prevented it. Know that my thoughts are with you, and the fun times we had as young marrieds will always be a highlight in my life. Maybe she and Karla are catching up and planning something fun later for us. Be strong and know there are may who love you and remember the good times

Sending love and prayers to the Hatch and Schmutz families. Melanie was the best, most fun loving friend anyone could have. Growing up together was the best! She was so talented and fun to be around. I'll never forget when we were 9 years old, when my 3 year old brother passed away, she wanted to stay with me to give me comfort 24/7. And what fun we had in her old Rambler "Blondie". She taught me how to drive a stick shift in that cool car! Although I have not seen her for many years, she will never be forgotten. Rest in peace my dear friend.
