Jennifer and Alec,

I’m so glad we were able to spend time with Mrs. Melvin before we relocated. She was truly a blessing from God. Mrs. Melvin was a grandma to Miles since he was six years old. Miles always looked forward to going over and spending time with Alec. Mrs. Melvin’s strength and love of God was undeniable. I will truly miss her and I’m so glad I got those last few hugs before we left. I truly know that God greeted her with “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” She was truly a gift.

Doug & Mary Henry
