    It saddens my husband and I to hear of Melvins loss. He is a brother to us and that will never change. He always found a way to make all of us laugh, being silly. I never called him Mel, always Melvin. That was our bond, he would laugh and so would I and he always answered too, with a smile. We are so saddened he is gone, but his memory will live forever. We love you Melvin. May you now Rest in Peace... Prayers, and condolences go to his family from us, Pierre and Amy O'Neal. May God wrap his arms around all of you during this time of grieve.
