My Daddy, Quimby Melton Jr., was a Southern gentleman. He grew in grace and in spirit and in love. When he left this mortal Earth he left it as a Christian. He was 90 years old.
Most of all, he loved and cherished my Mama. For 69 years they were true to the vows they took on June 30, 1943 before they passed under the crossed sabers in their full military wedding at Fort Riley, Kansas. They indeed loved and cherished each other, till death they did part.
