My sincetest condolences to Melvin Miller famiky and friends. Respect n honor to my spiritual mentor. I'll miss our esoteric conversations regarding SOBRIETY: spiritually, mentally/emotionally & physically. Thanksgiving & Xmas dinners at Northland S.A.F. Melvin Miller carried the message.
Pax vobisum ad infinitum.

You will always have a special place in my heart Melvino. Im honored to be the other 1/2 of your bookend with love. Your sensitive words about my sweet Marcus and mental healing were immensely needed. And you came into my life a decade ago when I didnt even know how much I needed you and your refreshing friendship and kooky humor. Thanks for being there sweetie. Keep on trucking kiddo. I'll see you on the other side.

I suppose I know Melvin at the deepest level it is possible to know him. We "non-dated" for four plus years. I have seen his physical and emotional pain and daily struggles up close and personal. Although I didn't always like his counsel, I learned a great deal about life from him. What he shared with me has helped sustain me through the death of my son. His wisdom, curiousness, "little child spirit" and thoughtfulness are some his best traits.
Even when he was being an a__hole, I always knew his true self and the beautiful soul beneath the layers of his humanness.
I love you, Melvin. I've felt you around occasionally since your transformation. I sense that you're finally unencumbered fro
...m the trails of life.
Shazam, my friend.

Melvin was a unique individual. Strong as nails, sweet as honey, funny as shit and sometimes caustic too. He unabashedly stood up for what he believed as right and definitely danced to his own heartbeat. Melsin was easy to admire, hard to grasp. He was a friend to me and so many others. He is missed for his love, wit, gregarious personality and unique style. Vaya con dios amigo.

Melvin was a special guy. We had several common life experiences and challenges. He had more knowledge and experience than I was willing to listen to and he was good. . He fought hard one day a time, each day was hard, and he always looked for something good in the day. No more struggle, pain and hardship. His presence in this world will be missed. As he would say, "It's all about love."

Melvin was a true spirit in the wind who defied the arms of death more times than I can count. He lived life from a moment to moment space of deep love, fun and appreciation of life. He was a tirelessly advocate for those with mental health challenges his entire life. May we all strive to live life as free as he did shunning the norms and riding the wave of deep feeling as he did so effortlessly🌀🌈💜
