Dear Chuckie and Valerie, holding all of you in my heart and prayers during this very sad time for all of you. Your mom was a great lady and so talented. She was courageous and brave in coping with her painful illness. Much love. Debbie Drago, Pat's daughter.

I knew Mel from working at NYSTRS. Mel always had a smile for me. She was such a kind, thoughtful person and she will be dearly missed by so many. May God Bless her and all those she loved.

I worked with Mel at NYS Teachers' Retirement System for many years and enjoyed our chats we had together......she was a hard worker and can't believe God has taken her so in peace.

I worked with Mel for a short time before she retired; but I learned in that time that she had big heart, a sharp sense of humor, and a lot of love for her family and friends. We already missed her when she retired, and we miss her even more now.
