Melvin Clarence Davis (June 8, 1939-December 21, 2008)


My husband's brother Mel died early this morning of ALS. May flights of angels sing him to his rest. We love Mel and we shall miss him. Our condolences to his children Rhonda, Chris, Scott, Jeff, Kerri, Cindy, Jodi and their families, and to his brothers and sisters, Donna, Alyce, Jean, Richard, and Marv and their families. Mel leaves behind 20 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.

As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. (1 Cor. 15:22)

To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. (John 18:37)


Blessed be.

I hope he's better now, and with loved ones, Jo.

There must be a joyous reunion in some other place...just enjoy your own coming reunion with your folks from Japan! I'll be thinking of you, having a wonderful visit!

I miss Mel.
Comming over for coffee.
Trips to the casinos.
Being with him at family gatherings, where he would clue me
in to his relatives names. And how they were related.
Our daily calls.
His, sometimes not wise but well meant, advice.
His love for his family.
I miss him.
