Well Mel, it has taken us some time to write in here because we still can't believe that you are gone. The holes in our hearts just don't seem to be mending as the days go by. You are the kind of friend that comes in someones life and acts more like a brother. I can see your smile when I think of you & Ida driving around in the 38 Dodge. The times that we spent going places in your van. Watching our kids grow up together to become awesome adults and still giving us all backtalk, then smiling when they weren't looking. You were and still are a part of the "A Racing Team". Mel, we can't say goodbye and won't say goodbuy. We will just say, "UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN". GOD BLESS YOU.
Love, The Armstrongs

Mel, you are amazing! I have never seen so many people who have been touched by one man. You are still with us every day and we all still love you very much and miss you even more. Keep showing us those signs and we will visit you soon. This picture is only a small portion of those people you touched.

Thank you for that and to your family, I am very, very sorry that you lost your husband, father, grandfather, great and friend. He is with our dear Lord and will be waiting to see you all again someday~~ My condolences to you all.

Auckerman family, a poem for you....

I am never alone

You are with me.

The nights may sometimes stretch long and lonely

Deep down I know

You are with me.

When things are not quite right

Life often seems like a fight

I know, no matter what

You are with me.

When I need a shoulder to cry on

Or someone to uplift me

All I need to do is close my eyes

You are with me.

There is love, understanding and warmth around me

From the moment I wake up, and especially whilst i sleep

I am never alone...

You are with me....

We love you!!
Hathway Family

Just wanted to let you guy's know, that. Your family holds a special place in my heart since you were pretty much the first people in Spokane I met and became friends with. When I moved here and made the mistake of sitting in your section at Stateline. (best "mistake" I ever made) You guys made me feel comfortable which made me keep comin back. (now look what you've done) I will miss seeing the 05 up towards the front of the pack, and that infectious smile. You'll never be forgotten. RIP Mel. See you at the race track in the sky my friend.

I am sorry for Terry and Auckerman family. Mel Auckerman is gone now. Nickalus and my mom Brenda from Stateline races will miss him. I still have the trophy that Mel gave me when he won the trophy dash. Mel was one of a kind greatest racer ever known. Love you Terry and Auckerman Family. Sorry we missed the funeral but nickalus had testing and been sick. Wish we could have made it. If you are racing Terry hopefully you will win the trophy dash next Wednesday and we will try to be there to cheer you on. Sorry we didn't make it out to the races yet this year to see Mel race.
