    So many words can be said and with a very heavy heart I write this entry. Melvin was the one to call on if you had any issues. He would give you advice on what to do. I remember the days of him working for Arc Electric, such good times. He loved his music MOP his song choice and I always said turn it down. He’d laugh saying ok old lady lol. Always made me laugh and feel good about myself. I’m going to really miss you my luv. Rest In Peace and don’t cut up too much up there with mama. Love Always Keysha and family

    Lil Mel just know that I love and miss you so much. Never thought you would be gone so soon. I thought we had a long time ahead. God already knew this day would come. The thing is we didn’t. Our dad is hurting so much but he continues to say God makes no mistakes and we both know He doesn’t. Give momma a hug and kiss. Love you always your big sister Sharon ๐Ÿ’–

    To a true friend and coworker: “If Tears Could Build a Stairway”
    If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane we would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken no time to say goodbye. You were gone before we knew it and only GOD knows why. Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you no one can ever know. But now we know you want us to mourn for you no more, to remember all the happy times life has much in store. You will never be forgotten. RIP Melvin aka Lil Bill.

    My heart is broken. I never thought you would leave me so soon. Our time is now a memory that I will forever hold in my heart. Only you and I know the count. They say that God makes no mistakes, so I will trust in that and hope that time will heal. You will be missed and forever in my heart โค๏ธ
