The party was hosted by their daughters, Dinah (Jim) Mitchell-Brown of Antioch, Wanda (Phil) Barnes and Judy (Rick) Barnette, both of Franklin.
The Mitchells were happy to see many friends, some from far away, and many family members. Their granddaughter, McKenzie, was home from Dallas Baptist University where she is a freshman.
Another granddaughter, Kelly, was there with her twins, Hutch and Anniston, who are four years old.
Melvin and Nancy feel blessed to have four children, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, including the twins. They thank God every day that all are healthy and feel that He has blessed them far more than they deserve.
