Treasure your cousin they were your first friends and will love you forever. Remembering the things we did together as kids puts a smile on my face and happiness in my heart. I grew up with you and it still does not seem real that you are truly gone. Family does not always see each or keep in touch but we always know we are in each other's hearts. We will truly miss you and love you so much. Only wish we knew when time was to take us beyond this earth so we would know to spend that much more time together now. Give my Mom a big hug and I will know you are now an angel to help protect us all from above . Love you Cuz and will miss your laugh and the love you always made me feel.

Your Cousin

I have been a friend of Melvin's since way back at Kimberly Pines Skating Rink. He always lit up a room when he walked in.

My prayers of peace and comfort are sent to the Grubbs family.
