Regina Long Southall Ms. James, I have a heavy heart knowing that your daughter and my goof friend, Melanie, has expired. Melanie and I had some good times at Lakeview Elementary, Portsmouth, Virginia. Meeting the two of you years ago was truly a blessing. You and Melanie were my supporters at every book showcase I had, rain or shine. We had some good laughs in person or while talking on the telephone as well. I will always remember the message Melanie had recorded on her cell phone: “ Sorry I missed your call. Convince me to call you back”. Rest on sweet friend until we meet again. Sincerely, Regina Long Southall Chesapeake, Virginia
