    Leave your sadness behind and join us as we celebrate the life of Melvin L Jones.

    Melvin was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He was also a talented man with abilities to do many things well. His occupation speciality was designing electronic circuit boards. Outside of work he helped to serve anyone with whom he came in contact. We invite you to zoom-in, drive-by, or sit at the outdoor celebration service.

    Melvin, beloved husband and father, passed away after an acute kidney infection. We invite his friends and loved ones to join his family. Melvin prepared for his death and asked for a celebration of life instead of a funeral. We’ll share a few stories; listen to a quick message; and hear one of his favorite songs.

    The service is expected to be brief. Agenda is as follows:

    * Military Honors
    * Few Stories
    * Message from Paster
    * Music
      - Prelude 1 C Major - Bach
      - Ill be there - Jackson
      - Let's Stay Together - Green
      - And I Love Her - TheBs
      - Forerever Loving Jah - Marley
      - You'll Never Walk Alone - Franklin
      - Made A Away - Brown
      - Over the Rainbow - Cassidy
