Melanie lived up the the road from me. I would help her clean out the her horse stalls so we could ride her horses. She had several. However, her favorite was her palomino. Her father was a professional polo player, so she was very knowledgeable about horses. But she was fond of all animals. I'm so glad that she was at home with her beloved animals. She was a very sweet person. I think she moved back to Florida after her Junior year. RIP, Melanie. With fond memories, Rebecca Horen Ransburg.

Mel & I had visited Melanie several times in Fla., her husb Marvin was a really super nice guy, & was a hay farmer.  She had her horses & was into raising exotic birds, from the eggs. We would talk on the phone occasionaly, & she called when they moved to Virginia. We never did get there to see them, when Marvin died unexpedly she was so crushed. When I got the word Melanie past away I was so sorry we hadnt made it to her log house, she loved it so. Yes Mel & I had a lot of memories with Melanie.  I remember when she came to the Bash, one of the very 1st, & our son, Jeff came down to tell us he was back from his vacation.  Melanie was talking to us & we introduced him to her. Melanie pop up & said  "and just think, I could have been your Mother."  Jeff's look was priceless.  Mel had been dating her before he & I started dating.
