Condolence from Mary Ediger and Robert Ross on November 17th, 2014 10:18 am

Felicia and family members – Memory of Melvin and your photo slideshow of your father brought tears to our eyes. It tells so much of who he was and how dear family was to his heart and as his source of deep, deep pride. While we are somewhat newcomers to Port Mouton, Melvin treated us very, very well on our regular get-togethers on Howie and Charlotte’s back deck. I also recall Melvin’s determination and perseverance to get better and to return to his boat and to friends in Port Mouton while visiting him in Halifax hospital a few years back during his heart surgery.We shall miss him but shall not forget him. Take comfort during this trying time of all the people who your father touched and how much others care.

Condolence from Robert & Sally Fader on November 17th, 2014 11:20 am

Felicia:

I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. After watching the video I could see how he loved you and his grandchildren. I know from watching Robert and Mitchell leaving in the truck to head out to camp, that there is a special bond between the two of them. Lucas shared that bond with your Dad and that is something he will always cherish.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.

Condolence from Nancy & Curtis Daury on November 17th, 2014 9:02 pm

Felicia & family,
Felicia, I am writing this and crying. Your father, Curtis, your mom
and myself we all grew up together. I just keep thinking of all the good times we spent together in the little house in SW. Your father had a great sense of ‘dry ha-ha’, we all just took his jokes “with a grain of salt”. He was very generous and we know how much he loved his grandchildren. We can only hope that he is re-united with Joel and his parents. That is all we can hope for in our passing, to be with family. Know we are thinking of you and all your family and if there is anything we can do for you, just call.
Love The Daury’s

Condolence from Howie & Charlotte Callahan on November 18th, 2014 1:40 am

Felicia, Donaldson and family,
We’ve had the privilege of knowing Melvin for many years. What will live on in our memory of him was his zest for life and his boundless generosity. This was most apparent at the end of each lobster season when his boat was a hub of activity and there was always enough goodies to go around. The more the merrier. He happily would give lobsters to the men who delivered diesel fuel or to those who just happen to drop by his boat at the right time..
Through all the challenges that Melvin faced in his life, he always remained strong and never gave up on his zest for life and his innate desire to make others around him happy. We will miss him.
Please accept our deepest sympathy.

Condolence from Tim McDonald on November 18th, 2014 8:02 am

Condolence from al and wendy on November 18th, 2014 3:32 pm

Felicia, Donaldson, Emma and Lucas; Even though we didn’t know your father/grandfather personally, we still knew from many people that he was an exceptionally nice person with a loving passion for his family. The lost is always felt more strongly when that person filled such a huge part of your heart. Remember a part of him will always be watching, loving and guiding you all and with God’s speed will the memories turn from pain to comfort in the days and years ahead.
