Uncle mel You were a hard worker,a godly man and You were and still are loved by so many people. U have touched us all in so many ways just buy helping us when we just need someone to talk to or give us advice when times we're hard. You will be missed by so many people that have known and loved you, especially me uncle Mel. You were always there to talk to when times got hard for me or give me advice on certain issues or send me prayers and sometimes just to talk about the past we're all of us kids would drive you nuts in Ellenville lol. I liked the old story's you would talk about or when you would ask when will we come to visit you (witch was hopefully going to be this summer😢). I know we didn't talk much but when we did write it was always a nice time on facebook and Those will be the memories I will cherish.rip uncle Melvin until we meet again.
