  1. Pauline, Willie, Carolyn, Diane and other family members: We are very saddened to read of Melvin’s death. I, Teresa, remember him from our growing-up days at New Franklin Christian Church. He was so kind and fun-loving (same as most of us “Bradley” cousins). Our prayers go out to you, each and everyone. Because we have the Hope provided us by Jesus Christ, we will see our loved ones again one day. In the meanwhile, may God comfort and sustain you is our prayer. With deepest sympathy, Teresa (Bennett) and Mike Shirley, Bowersville
