Papa Shrek was a great man! He always seemed to be quick to smile and had a light around him. Love and condolences to his family.

Melvin was a big teddy bear. He was very social and in the thick of things wherever he was. The picture on the obituary speaks volumes for his personality. My wife, children and I loved Melvin/Shrek and got a kick out of "Shrekkie" whom he took with him to get drinks at Hart's. I look forward to a jovial reunion on the other side and a big teddy bear hug from Melvin. May his family experience comfort and peace during this time of loss.
