Uncle Melvin you will be missed by all of us. But I know your heart was always with Aunt Freida. Even after she went to be with her maker you always left saying We Love You. You are again joined together.
RIP I love you!

I still remember all the times we spent at Uncle Melvin's house when I was younger and the garden he always seemed to have. Of course we always called him my his nickname, Shorty. Your family will be in my prayers and thoughts.
