Join Pauline Alighieri host the Friends of Mel radio show on Diva Toolbox Radio. Pauline will share with us the story of Mel and the great work the foundation created in her honor is doing every day!

Mel Simmons exuded life. She brought it into every room she ever entered, every life she ever touched. Mel loved people and took them as they were, on their terms. Friends of MelPeople responded to her in a way that we have never known in anyone else.

She listened to them, cared about what they had to say and how they felt, and they knew it. Mel's friendships transcended time, geography, age and education. She had a common touch that allowed people trust and unconditional love - that allowed them hope. Mel had a special place for every person, and we wonder how she had so much room.

People who knew her speak of her as loving mother, an upbeat positive force, a woman who loved life, who cared about people, a loyal person, a beautiful person, a fierce competitor and a real friend.

Mels's parents instilled in their children a lifelong sense of family. These children learned that the greatest joy in life was giving to others. Her loyalty and love for her brothers and sisters was absolute. They meant so much to her, as well as all her beloved nieces and nephews.
