Mel will be for ever missed. He was one of a kind. My youngest son’s comment was ” mom, remember Uncle Mel left his own special foot print with all who are left behind “. I have found that very comforting. I have shed tears,& laughter with friends & family members since the tragedy. He was a great brother, family member, friend in need to one & all, hard worker & fun loving.
You will not be forgotten Mel.
Love Sis (Eileen)

We will miss you and your visit’s, the years have been good and bad ,But now you have gone to a better place.
My cousin Mel was a very special Man, if somebody needed help he was the first to arrive to see what he could do. Mel was a real joker he loved to play pranks on anyone and everyone and he did that many a time in his day. Mel was a compassionate man always had kind words to help people through their rough times, I know his calls two, three times a week when I needed someone he was always there for me. RIP dear cousin you will be missed by the many lives to touched. Love Eleanor
