In will always cherish the memories of counting in Italian for Melvin. If i went to Bingo with my mom i always had to count for him. I saw him just a few years ago at a friends birthday party and the minute he saw me he asked me to count to 10 for him in Italian! We laughed so much, and i am so greatful for that memory! His fun and loving spirit will always be with those of us who knew him. I will keep you all in my prayers!

I'm heartbroken for the Bley family. Words fall short at a time like this. I was so glad to know Mel and Sue when I was serving at North Collins Wesleyan Church. Mel was such an encouragement to me personally. I so enjoyed our many talks together, and he was always one to go above and beyond the call of duty. I've been so encouraged to hear from the other pastors who have served there since my time about how Mel got even more involved, and has played an even bigger role at the church. He loved the Lord, he served the North Collins community so well for so many years, and we all know how much he loved his family. God be with you in the days ahead.
