So thankful to have been apart of sweet Melinda's life. She made such an impact on our family with her positive attitude and kindness. Always had a smile to share. Her faith in God was simply admirable.
Love, Darrin Mitchell and his three girls

We are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers are for God's strength and comfort be real to you in this time of separation. We never met Melinda personally, but I did follow her blog and enjoyed many of her paintings while working at Beans-N-Cream. I am also grateful to be a proud owner of one. Melinda was a powerful encourager. Thank you for sharing your precious daughter and sister with so many of us. Hugs.

Dr. Pinkerton, I was so sorry to hear about your daughter's passing. I have thought about her and your family since you left Alamosa. It sound like she was a very special person and allowed God to work in her life even in her worst times. God bless you all I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Dr. Pinkerton, Bonnie and Family,

We're very sorry to hear about your Melinda. I often wondered about how she was doing when you left the SLV. It was wonderful to hear her story and her love for the Lord, family and for the arts. Peace be with her. Our deepest sympathy, thoughts, and prayers go out to your entire family. Hopefully we'll get to see you on a visit back sometime. Love, Art, Amy, Ryan, and Kamryn
