The Melton Family Expenses

For years our beloved husband, dad and friend had struggled with chronic back pain and diabetes.  Over the last year, he endured bouts of pneumonia and pancreatitis.  He so wanted to get outside and spend time with his family and friends, but his health wouldn't let him.  On October 9th, he was found almost unresponsive and went to the hospital.  Pancreatitis had returned and caused so much pain and nausea that he was too weak to walk.  Doctors did everything they could, but unfortunately he took a turn for the worse and was moved to ICU at Memorial Mission for closer care.  Our family was with him the entire time and he seemed to bounce back on October 18th and we were so hopeful he would get to come home soon.  Unfortunately, that was his last good day and he left his earthly body on Saturday, October 19th.  He will be missed by all that knew him and loved to listen to his stories.  He left behind a wife of 45 years who doesn't know how she will make it without him.  It has left her in a financial hardship and anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.
