Mrs. Kinney - As I spent a few minutes reading, I was quickly and happily taken back to my early years In Hinesburg and thought of the many hours I spent with my best friend Alan and being with your family so much of the time.  I was one of the many kids that played wiffle ball games in Mel's yard and as you remember, we took those games very seriously.  I can remember the stacks of coupon's he had from Martin's and of course the many cool trains were always of interest.  I can remember more than one trip to watch the Expos play.  I think Mel had team hats for all the MLB teams hung for viewing.  Mel was always kind to me and I will always remember him fondly as part of my youth.  I know that Alan loved him and often shared stories about him.  I am so very sorry for your loss.  losing a spouse and a partner is a very hard thing - I hope that you let the positive and happy memories guide you when you are sad.  If there is ever anything I can do for you or your family, please know that I will be there in an instant.  God Bless you!  with love and respect, Steve & Gretchen Lovering

Mel has been my brother-in-law and I was very pleased when he married my sister. He loved being included with all of the family when we had the Rouleau gatherings and we enjoyed his sincere character. I was in awe with seeing his 'train' room which filled the whole room! He had an 'account' book which kept track (a little play on words!) of the numerous amount and types of trains he had. There is no way that I could be so neat as he was with this list of his precious trains. Yes, coupons were also another awesome way that he loved to save on shopping items. Good for him. Mel will be missed. Big hugs to Bella and the family. God bless.  Mel's sister-in-law, Colombe Rouleau Remick in Conroe, Texas.
