Miss Michelle, just heard about Brother Mels passing. Words cannot express our sympathy. He was such a good, loving, kind, and caring person who will definitely be remembered and loved. So sorry we haven't seen you in soo long, Jason, Skyler, and I have been working like crazy, but we do miss you terribly. Brother Mel had his own funny ways to make everyone smile and that will be a memory that i will always cherish. He always made us feel like we belonged at Church, especially when Jason was driving over the road always asking me how J was doing. Should you need ANYTHING please just call. Even if im at work. My number is 814-961-4345. Love you. May Brother Melvin now rest in the arms of Our ...Great and Wonderful Savior. His journey on Earth is done but his Eternal journey with Our wonderful Lord has just begun in Heaven.Read more
