    Mary and Callahan Family,
    We are very sorry to hear of Melba’s passing. She was a very kind and sweet woman. I have many memories of her. Whether it was at the Callahan house, our house or down at the lake, they were good times. I know she will be sorely missed by all who knew her! Our hearts go out to all of you!

  4. Kelly Baumgardner says:

    My heart goes out to you and your family. Melba was such a wonderful woman and so incredibly great to me for so many years. I will cherish my memories of her always. She was very proud of her family and raised some very wonderful children who grew into some tremendous adults who I am proud to say have been a very important part of my life. My children, Jaeden, Ean and Mea, her great-grandchildren, will miss her tremendously. You are all in our thoughts and in our hearts.

    “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

    God Bless all of you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

    With Love,
    Kelly Baumgardner
