My heart was saddened to hear about Mr. Mellinger. I loved his stories even though I didn't know half the people in them. If anyone could make you feel like one of the family when you stepped into the Mellinger home, it was Wayne and his loving wife. He will be missed by many I am sure and will always be a shining star in my memory. Love, Hugs, and Prayers for you Barbara and all the family including your special daughter Sandy.

Aunt Barb and family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of my favorite uncle.  I never got to spend much time with him as I left the area about 55 years ago and never got to know his lovely family but always heard some nice things from my mother regarding them.  Having been up there quite a bit this past year, Uncle Wayne and Aunt Barb made a point to take me to lunch and tour me around some of the places that he and my mother had lived.  I am asking the Lord to Comfort and Embrass all of your during this time of loss.  I just know that we will all see him again!

Love and prayers,
