  5. Judy, words cannot express my feelings I have for you and your family. You’ve been so strong through all this but I know you will continue to be strong for your family. Your pain will be private as only you can know the pain. It’s only been 2 months since Allen passed away but I miss his presence every day even though he was difficult at times. I pray for you and your family. I know your faith is strong and you have wonderful children to help you through. God bless you, Judy.

  6. Terry and I send our deepest condolences to Judy and her family. We were so blessed to be part of Mel’s life to share in many good times and adventures together.

  7. Joanie Olson notified us about the passing of Mel. So very sorry, Judy, to you and your family. Thoughts and prayers are with you. We have thought about you and your times at LIV! We still have our little place, but my cancer has returned so we spend time at MD A in Houston, Texas, with chemo and radiation of the brain, bone, and many other places. Don’t know what I would so without Huey, and also being helped by Home Health. Just know we are thinking about you.

  8. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Judy and Family. Mel was a true gentleman and an all around great person. The amount of courage he possessed fighting the terrible disease was truly remarkable. He will be missed.

    Bill and Grace
