Martin family, I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Melvin was such a major person in my childhood (he was married to Aunt Sissy, my father's sister). Countless weekends and week long stays at their home, trips to Hershey Park and local fairs. He was a great uncle. And he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to you all during this time.

We are so sorry to learn of the passing of Melvin. Melvin was a special part of our family and Twin Oak Farm for so many years. We could always count on Melvin to have our yard in tip top shape every week of the Spring and Summer. We always looked forward to talking with Melvin whenever he was around. We will miss him a great deal but know that at least he is comfortable now and watching over the farm from Heaven. Gary and Linda Donley
