My dearest Lovebirds....there is only sadness in my heart for the loss of our beloved Mel. I'm including you both in my daily prayers, and hoping God has blessed you both with peace and grace to get through this veil of tears. Think of you everyday, knowing the grief and heart aches you are experiencing. He truly was the man of your dreams, as are you my dear Lois, the woman of his dreams. Let this lighted candle bring you warmth, love and sympathy shared by one who always admired your love and devotion to each other as well as family and friends. GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU BOTH FOREVER IN HIS CARE. BIll and I BOTH LOVED YOU BOTH. Sending tight hugs, Ole Harkness

My wife Ruth and I became close friends with Mel and Lois when they joined us at the Dallas headquarters. Come the holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.) for those who could not get home; the Melvilles had everyone to their place for a cookout- always a place to go. Prior to his retirement, Mel took me to the national headquarters to get acquainted. On his last trip he said he was looking forward to travel and golf- he asked for only 10 years. When he passed, Mel was starting his 4th ten year period of retirement- way to go Mel! When I retired 2 years after Mel, we exchanged visits in Phoenix and Anacortiz- and even in London when he and the Dobbs arrived on the same plane we were to return home on after a European vacation. We will miss you Mel!
