To Luretta and the entire Weber Family, we are so sorry for your loss. Melvin was a very special man and we feel blessed to have had the visits with him and Luretta. I'm also thankful that my husband Jim and daughters Hannah and Sarah were able to meet such a wonderful man. Our prayers are with each of you. May the Lord comfort you and keep you in his tender arms.

Fr. Weber and family, my condolences on the loss of your Dad, husband, and grandfather. I am sorry I am unable to be present for the funeral Mass as I have commitments with the National Guard, but I will hold you in my prayers.
