My heart goes out to the Pirkle family. I have only known Melvin a few years, but enjoyed his stories and wisdom he shared with me of growing up in hard times. I know he will be missed by his loving wife, that he cared for deeply. As well as the many family and friends that he loved, and they in return.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
