I have heard such good stories about the sweetest Papaw in the world. If only I could have been blessed to meet you before God called you home. I can only be grateful that now you do not have to suffer and that one day in the future I can meet you. Please watch over my best friend Emily, your granddaughter! Love you Papaw!

Even though Johnny and I cannot be with you all today, we are with you in mind and spirit. Our prayers and love go out to all of you as you walk through this loss. The first thing I think of when Melvin comes to mind is his huge smile and quirky humor, always a joy to see him and listen to him play his music like no one else can for sure. I have a heavy heart today for myself but I know he is smiling wide with our loved ones that are waiting for him. We will see you soon. Love you all. Johnny and Corliss (Granger) Colligan

The sad feelings everyone has for a wonderful honest man as Melvin has always been, has now been called home to a special place for eternity. The loss here on earth is yours, and is the Lord's gain in Heaven. We will remember him and his goodness.

Melvin was one of the finest men I have ever known. He would always tell the truth. If Melvin told you something, you could count on it. I will miss Melvin and will always remember him.
