I wish to thank Mr. Melton for keeping our Country safe while in service. I did not know Mr. Melton, but we hold a bond, brothers together in the Armed Forces and that Bond will always be strong. I wish I had a chance to know him and talk to him.

I want to send my Condolences to the Family of Mr. Melton. I know he was a great man for serving our Country. He is now in GODS hands along with all of my own fallen Family. I'm very sure he will be missed dearly. As one door closes another one opens. He is and very good place now. God Bless Him and his whole Family. I know this is a hard time for you all, just remember he will always be in Your Hearts and Memories.

This is my first time writing to a Family I do not know. I chose to send my Condolences to the Family because of my respect, honor and love for a fallen brother.

GOD Bless You all,
Robert Lewis

Dear Melton Family: I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be of great comfort. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.
