It’s been a lot of years since I’ve seen Uncle Mel but the memories remain. He had such a big heart, always ready to do whatever he could to help. He was so kind, sweet and funny…laughing was not an option when he was around. I love you Uncle Mel! Enjoy your new life with Jesus!!❤
My DEAR Brother you have left me to soon, our crazy conversation’s about the south and Alligators I will miss dearly. Our favorite movies , Water Boy and O’ Brother how art thou . There’s too much to say here , I’ll see you on the outside until then you know how to find me. Love you Pappy O’Donnell
My memories of you and Mel was from the meeting place on Walnut street. He always arrived with a smile. His eyes sparkled when he looked at Mona. I will cherish those memories and unspoken moments of Love and Fellowship.
We are very sorry for your loss.
My dearest friend, Mel,
I miss watching MSNBC with you and listening to your commentary re: politics. You have taught me so much in the short time I’ve known you. I have so much to say to you and not enough space to say it all! I pray there are Jelly Bellys, ice cream, peanut M&Ms, and crunchy peanut butter cookies with Hershey’s kisses on top for you!
I love you dearly and I wish you were here to yell at me to shut-up just one more time….
Mona, My deepest sympathy to you and family. I always enjoyed visiting with the two of you here in AZ. Mel had a difficult life since moving to Ohio with his many health issues. He is now pain free and at peace. RIP Mel.
What a beautiful tribute to a great person. We didn’t know Mel very long but he was a great neighbor and an inspiration. I am sure he will be missed by Mona and his family. Rest in peace, honorable soldier.
