Since so many of you have cared, have prayed and hoped and cheered and emotionally invested, I needed to let you know that this happened last night.

Needless to say, we are all heartbroken. Thank you for support and love.

With apologies to the Brothers Gibb:

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken dream?
How can you rise up again and see the sun?
Please help them mend their broken hearts and let them live again.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Melanie. God bless.

Sweet, dear friend... my heart stopped when you told me. As everybody has acknowledged...

All you have to do is ask. We love you.
