Melinda Linpinski, Wife Ken Lipinski 50 Major + Mavericks
From Jill,

My heart is just breaking that I am writing this and I know you will feel the same.

Melinda lost her so courageous battle with cancer Monday morning at 7:45 a.m. Ken was with her at the hospital when she passed.

We all loved Melinda so much. Her positive attitude about everything, her bubbling personality, her radiant face - everything. She will be deeply missed. We are all better for knowing her.

Service arrangements are pending. I believe they will be at Mariners Church in Newport on or about 02/12/08. I will let you all know as soon as they are definite.

Please keep Melinda and Ken in your prayers.
