The tender care and dedication of the medical professionals involved in his stay is greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

Melvin was a long time business owner and was appreciated for his excellent business skills, but more than that, he was loved and admired for his honesty, trustworthiness, hard work and respect for his fellow man. His decisions were always guided by these values.
