James R. Melroy

In Memory of My Son

James R. Melroy

June 13,1972-
June 26, 2008

Five years ago on June 19 I lost my father, then one week to the day on June 26, I lost my beloved son James. He was only 36 years old and I miss him every day. He had worked at the Press-Telegram over 10 years and was so loved by his family and friends. James and his grandfather were very close as James father was not in the picture and my Mom and Dad helped me raise him. James had just finished writing his grandfather's obituary that evening and he went to sleep and I couldn't wake him up. He was so sad after my Dad passed and he had told my sister a few weeks earlier that he was just so tired, James was born with a muscle disease and had many surgeries and I think he just had enough. I will always miss him so much and love him until we meet again in heaven. Love, Mom
