   Melody Monaco, age 50, of Thornton, Colorado, passed away Friday, February 10, 2012, at her daughter's home in Missouri following a courageous battle with cancer.

We knew Melody and was very fond of her and saw her battle through, not complaining just keeping her sweet smile and good attitude. My thoughts and prayers are with her and Louis and the rest of the family even today. We got to enjoy a camping adventure in the Colorado Mountains and sit along side while watching her hubby box. Miss her!

I send my sincere and heart felt condolences to Melody's family and friends. May you find peace in your hearts through all the wonderful memories you have of her. May got lift you up in your time of sorrow!RIP Sweet Melody!
