To James Geno and the entire Mixon Family

Melvin was one of the first people my son's and I met on Miller Ave. We're sadden to hear of his passing. A beautiful person and I couldn't ask for a better neighbor.

I leave this thought with you.

The nicest place to be is in someone's thoughts,the safest place to be is in someone's prayers, and the very best place to be is...in the hands of GOD.

And while were all miss him always, know that you have the greatest gift that will live on within each of you and that is the MEMORIES created and shared that will never FADE......

May you find comfort, in time, knowing he is in the best of hands.

My dearest brother, words cannot describe the sadness and emptiness I am feeling. You were not just my brother; you were my dad (after dad passed), advisor, encourager, counselor and best friend. You were ALWAYS there when we needed you. Your best friend/my husband (Enisho) loved you and misses you terribly already. You will FOREVER live in our hearts. We'll cherish all the fond memories.
I will be sure to give your beautiful daughters/my nieces (Nette, Michelle, and Kim) a hug for you and let them know that you loved them very much. Rest well my brother..... I will see you again!! ❤
