I was so sad to see Melvin had passed in the paper. He was a great guy and I loved picking on him. Whenever I saw him I called him Trouble. Praying for you all has you grieve.

Susan, Steve, and Scott,
Mark and I are so extremely sorry for your loss. We were so fortunate to see him the other week when we were home, and as always, he had a smile on his face when we talked. I think about all of the fun our two families have had through the years. I know words can''t really take away the pain of your loss, but just know that there is a big reunion going on in heaven. Our prayers are with you and your families.

Scott, Christine, Susan, Mike, Steve, Jennifer, Carol, and Larry,
There are no words that can take away the sadness, but know you are in the hearts and prayers of many. Your Dad / brother was a very Special man and will be missed dearly! He always had time for you-- a smile, little joke and a warm greeting. I watched the video over 2-3 times and it is those memories and more that will bring a tear, a smile, a chuckle, and the warm feeling of Love! You had a wonderful Mom and Dad and they live on in all of you!!! MAY GOD GIVE YOU THE PEACE THAT ONLY HE CAN GIVE!
In Love and Prayer
