Mel was a great brother-in-law. He took good care of our sister and their family. He was justifiably proud of his service to his Lord and to the community in which he lived. We were honored to have him in our family. Our sister made a good choice 65 years ago.------- Emerson and Ellen Wells, DeKalb, IL

Uncle Mel will always have a very special place in my heart. He is a role model for a parent, spouse, and most importantly a loving Christian. He will be missed greatly. Our prayers and love to his beautiful wife Aunt Estel and his daughter Leslie, James, and his grandchildren.
