Melody Tanaé  Young transitioned on October 20, 2019.

Melody was born October 16, 2011 to Marcus & Jessalyn Young at Cape Fear Valley Hospital in Fayetteville, North Carolina. 

She leaves to cherish her parents Marcus & Jessalyn Young, her brother Marcus Young Jr., grandparents Barbara Johnson of Fayetteville, NC; Vanice & Estella Ball of Fayetteville, NC; Johanna Young and Berry Washington both of Pennsauken, NJ; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. 

Melody was a very happy child, she had a smile that would brighten anyone's day. Melody has been a fighter since she was born, although family was told that she would only survive 6 months, God has other plans and she lived until her eighth birthday.
