Cassandra, "my little pillar of strength", thank you so much for sharing Melvin with all of us. Words cannot express how I feel each and every time I look at your family pictures, listen to the tender music, and read all the beautiful tributes to Melvin. Thanks to you and your family, I feel like I knew him....my only regret is that I never met him. Melvin, thanks to you for bringing us all together in love. You are not a memory but a TREASURE!

My thoughts and memories of you are over whelming and I will never get used to you not being here with us. I Love you Nephew!!"
"So emotional with all of the beautiful tributes and memories. One thing I know for sure... It's nearly impossible for myself to have a day where your not thought about, simply because we've shared something special that we were able to extend to your family.. Our daughter ( kiana). I wish you were here to see how beautiful your children and grandchildren are. We miss you & never forgotten."
"I wish I had the privilege of knowing you Melvin . I know you and I would have been so close just like I am with the rest of my cousins . You know what though? This may seem weird but even though Ive never met you, I still love you very much and in my heart I know you love me too<3 love your cousin Briana"
I really do not know where to begin. I can not believe it has been 20yrs, it feels as if it was just yesterday. I miss you Mel.

Love Nikkey"

Yo save me a seat I know u got them n a uproar... LMBO"
"Wow 20 years! I am having mixed emotions right now... Im incredibly hurt but remain extremely proud to have been blessed with someone like you in my life. You were the coolest dude I'd ever met.

"Today is the hardest day. Today is the day you were taken away. The hopes, our dreams....never came to fruition. I see your face in us all. I see your style walking thru the malls. I say to no one inparticular, "he looks like my nephew" and I just smile. We have Melvin Jr, We Have Kiana. We have Harmony your granddaughter and our newest addition Melvin 4. Missing you today."
"As human beings we do what comes natural for us and say to God why him/her, why now when we lose our love ones. Although we hurt tremendously we ultimately know God makes no mistakes. So we celebrate their life and show tribute for our loved ones in ways like this. We love and miss you Cuzzo! What an awesome tribute Aunt Cassanda! Love you!"

"20 years ago today My son Melvin Jamar Mccoy Sr was taken away from us. Melvin was the light of my light and the smile on his grandmother Veola's face. No words can express nor can I write how sad and empty I've felt for these last 20 years. I have your children and your grandchildren now and I thank God for them. I will love you and miss u till I see your beautiful face again. Love Mom"
