Memories of Melba Marie

Last Rod & MelbaToday I participated in my Aunt Melba's memorial service. There was a big crowd of family, neighbors, and friends who arrived to celebrate her life and pay tribute to her memory. I was asked to participate by making a memorial video and sharing a few words that express my feelings about the aunt that was also my next door neighbor for the first twenty years of my life. She was my mother's baby sister and could have easily been considered a second mother to my sisters and me. 

So what do you suppose I decide to talk about?  I doubt you'll ever guess.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: [email protected] or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.

    Hey Rod,

    I was going to leave a comment via the Personal Edge but I couldn't find where to do that so I am leaving my comment here.

    You had me in tears my friend... damn you :)

    I joke but you really did have me in tears for after reading the incredibly heartfelt story about your Aunt Melba followed by the video I was very moved... moved to tears.

    Your aunt was truly a special person and although you and I have never met... I hope to change that fact soon, I can just tell that you too are just like your aunt in that you serve yourself up to your friends and family without pretention and in a way that is warm, tasteful, and will put a smile on a persons face just by being in the room.

    Thank you for reminding me that the best things in life are truly free... Aunt Melba's buns for one :)

    Have a blessed day my friend,
    Steve O
