  1. I remember Aldine with fond memories. Looking at her photo reminds me so much of Homer T. She and her brother were so very close and now are together again. Jim and I and our two small children, Kobi and Jason had a great visit with Aldine and W.T. and their children at MidWay Ranch some 30 years ago, but it is still so fresh in my memories. She lived a great and long life and loved her family. My prayers and thoughts are with her family now.

  2. My dad always spoke highly of Aldine. And I remember her as my grandfather’s closest sister. With much love, Kobi (Homer T Melton’s grandaughter)
