Letters | An outpouring of love from family of Melanie Busby Motland

I would like to thank the Valley for the outpouring of their love for my daughter, Melanie Lee Busby Motland, who is now resting in heaven.

Special thanks to my brother, Brian; Steve Miller and his staff at North Bend Community Church; the Hines family; her AA family; Marci, Brianna and Missy, for putting together the slideshow; her friends at the Sno Ridge Apartments; my brother Terry, who is Melanie’s godfather; Tom and Mary.

As her mother, her sisters Kelly,  Cheryl and her daughters Jenna and Cheyenne, and the love of her life who always watched over her, her son Aspen, we are grateful to all of you. She will be greatly missed.

Claudia Busby
