This site is dedicated to Melodye Capitani, beloved Mom, Friend, and Aunt, who unexpectedly passed away in her sleep on January 7, 2010.

On January 7, 2011 it will have been one year since she left us. It is all so surreal and time stands still for me. I feel like she is still present in the world but I just haven't seen her in a while. Grieving is a slow process. Nevertheless, this site will come down January 7, 2011. So if you would like to take one more look at this memorial site (see new pics) or have anything you would like to share, please do. Thank you for being a part of Melodye's life. - Dina (Melodye's birthday is Jan 1st. She would have been 66 this year).

Sign the guest book, share a story, a song, a video or a candle in remembrance and celebration of Melodye. This will help keep her memory close to our hearts and help us through the loss of her in our daily lives. - Dina (daughter)

Mom basically drafted the below obituary herself. She left a document "In the Event of my Death' to help us out when she died. Always considering others before herself even after she left this body. I'm still in total shock doing the next right thing. There really are no words to adequately describe this vibrant, beautiful woman who was my Mother and best friend....

CAPITANI, Melodye Wysowski age 65, passed away in Nashville, TN on January 7, 2010. Melodye was born January 2, 1945 in New York, NY. She grew up in Clinton, CT and was a graduate of Morgan High School. Melodye moved to Nashville, TN in 1993, where she resided at the time of her death. She is survived by the loves of her life – her son Christopher and her daughter Dina. She is predeceased by her father and mother, George and Louise Wysowski and her brother, Ronald Wysowski, all of Clinton, CT.


Please Read at My Funeral

The Words of God I personally experienced and held close to my heart:

“For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee”
(Isaiah 41:13)


As praises waft above my head
And rise to meet Your Face,
I join in Zion’s song
As Your Presence fills this place.

In meekness and humility
Our countenance we raise;
The Host of Heaven heralds
Our sacrifice of praise.

Angelic melodies burst forth
In full, resplendent sound;
We are in Eternity
And this is Holy Ground.

Mortal phrases pass my lips
Your Living Word is sung;
I wait upon Your Spirit
To transform my finite tongue.

The marrow of our souls expose,
Oh Lamb upon the Throne,
The veil of Heaven now is rent
By the blood of Glory’s Own.

Desire of All Ages Past,
Your bride is cleansed from sin.
The wedding of the Lamb is come.
Oh let the Feast begin!

The Ship Eternity

I have a Reservation
On a Ship “Eternity”
It waits for me along the shore
Of a gleaming Crystal Sea.

Sails billow with Ancient Winds
And a rudder deep and wide
Is set like flint toward Zion
On a sure and certain tide.

The Fare is paid for the Plan was made
For the Voyage of my soul
By the Captain of the vessel
When He polled the Glory Roll.

One day soon in misty morn
The Trumpeteer will blow
An “All Aboard” ‘cross time and space
And anchors will heave ho.

All gangplanks shall be taken up
To lower nevermore
And those without a Passport
Shall be left upon the shore.

Unconcerned, they’ll watch and wait
For another sure roll call
Legions of ships will sail that day...
But for a different Port of Call.

Chris and Dina, I TRIED TO SEND a letter before but it did not go through, so I WILL try again... I am thinking of you both and I am missing your mom.. I hope the blessings of Easter is with all of you. A Easter message to you........ GOD in heaven has chosen to bend near toward the earth to see our sorrow and hear our prayers. He is not so far above us that he is not touched by our tears.

"I knew Melodye only through her beautiful daughter Dina. Their physical resemblance is striking and if Dina got even a portion of her inner beauty from Melodye, she left the world a better place."
