I have only known Mel & Ann for about 6 years now. I also would wait on them when they would come eat breakfast at Denny's. They were as much of the family there as we were. When they did not show up everyday we would always worry about them. I have learned a lot from both of them.Trust, faith , friendship, enjoyment of life & love for everyone around them. I am very blessed to have known Mel. My prayers are with all his loved one.
