Mel, I’ll never forget coming to the neighborhood and seeing you dancing with my Grandma in the driveway. Or walking around with your FBI hat on, patrolling the area and making sure all your neighbors and family are safe. You were a good man, Mel. I have countless memories with you and your family growing up. You will surely be missed. May you Rest In Peace with your Maker. Much love, Sammi

This world will not be the same without your humorous ways Uncle Mel, always looking to make people smile.
Now you’ll be forever with the ones you love who’ve already passed into heaven.
Love you

I had the honor to wheel my Uncle Mel around the hospital when he was there the same time with my mom. He didn’t remember me all that much, but when I asked him if I could do so, he just gave me that smile and said “Sure that would be great” RIP Uncle Mel!! We love you and will never forget you.

Loving thoughts to all of you. I am saddened that I never got to meet my father's brother, Melvin, but I know I would of loved him as all of you I have met. I know he is with family on the other side, so I will meet him sometime. Love to you all. He will remain with you always in each of your hearts and minds.

Dad I remember the fishing trips with you and your brothers (my uncles) I remember the foot races we had out front with you and Uncle Carl . The movies you took me to and all the good things you did for me to make my life and the family's life better. You taught me to be a good person and make the right choices and I did most of the time and learned tough when I didn't. I remember all the family gatherings we all went to almost every weekend. There's so much more I could talk about. Remember when you went to church every Sunday and passed the donation basket up and down the isles. I know you heard Sandy and my words on the day we came to see you before your passing . You responded to us by moving around while we rubbed you and said our last loving words to you.Did you like those to warm blankets we got for you ? I also remember I would tell you Dad your my best friend and my best buddy. You would tell me I Love You. Dad I miss you so much buddy. Your loved by us all. God Bless you Dad your in a good place with the Lord Jesus Christ and all of your family before you. I Love you Dad and thanks for your service your son John :)
