    My deepest prayer of symphaty to her family.In times like this; prayer is the only way for me to be consoled by her passing. Mel was one of my first client I supported when I started with DDRC a year and half ago. Its worth knowing Mel as vibrant, an artist and her own person. I am deeply saddened by her passing.
    “Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.” – AMEN

    Sincerely,
    Janet Ferrer and Family
