Melina Louise Bushell

My favourite memory

memory image

Every memory was precious We will always remember Lena was happiest where music,friends/family were involved.

Melina was our world. A beautiful daughter, loving sister, doted granddaughter, caring auntie, and the best friend to many. Taken far too soon and for reasons we will never fully comprehend. We have set up this page so others do not have to suffer alone.
