Melody Starr Derosia-Waters
In case anyone ever searches the Web for this name, I want them to find something nice.
Melody Starr Waters, or Melody Starr Derosia-Waters, was a good friend of mine a long time ago. She was killed in 1991, on January 11. She's been on my mind for the past 16 years.
Melody was beautiful, inside and out. No kidding. She was tall for a young woman, kind of big-boned, naturally blonde and very pretty.
Melody was a seeker. She was a hitch-hiker. She was a runaway. She was a Deadhead. She was a sister; she had a brother. I never met him but I know she loved him because she only spoke well of him and I heard her talk to him on the phone once shortly before she was supposed to go home to West Virginia.
She had an ex-boyfriend that she spoke well of. I think his name was Jay. He was in West Virginia. She told me about him shortly after I first met her.
I'm not sure what else to say about her right now. But there's a start.
