In Loving Memory of
Melinda Sharma
October 9th, 1969 – October 12th, 2020

Melinda’s family has requested, in lieu of flowers, that memorial gifts be given to TRAK, in honor and celebration of her life’s dedication to being an advocate for families with kids on the spectrum. The Autism world will not be the same without her, but will be forever changed because of her. She was an angel to all who had the pleasure of knowing her, we are blessed to have had her in our lives. Melinda is survived by her husband and 3 children, whom she loved more than anything.
