To Mel's family, although we'd not seen much of him during these past years; Mel will always be remembered as a wonderful person. Someone we are proud to have known. We know Sharon's brother "Junior" will miss Mel's greetings at church on Sundays. That meant a lot to him. Sorry we were unable to attend the funeral. We had to honor a previous commitment to care for our great granddaughter; and Walter Junior was ill that day. Praying you'll feel surrounded and held by the peace and comfort that only our Lord and Savior Jesus The Christ can give.

I thank God for Mel. I have learned much from him and his kind ways. Humility coupled with wisdom. He respected everyone and truly cared for souls. I know because he needed to rebuke me and I am thankful he did. He put into action God's word in a loving way for the good of others to the glory of God. This is a celebration of victory from death to eternal life! Although he will be missed by so many, we rejoice and have comfort in knowing he is with the LORD Jesus Christ forever! Perfect Peace...hallelujah and amen! Until we meet again!

Mel did everything right. He educated himself broadly, married Marilyn who shared his interests along with family joys and responsibilities. He laughed easily and respected the views of his friends and relatives. He used his conscience to make the world a better place for his having been a part of it. Well done, Mel.
