We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Horton's Funeral Home and Cremations
The moment has been determined by God and the task has been given to Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations to advise everyone, that Mr. Melvin Ray Rountree exited the Sentara Albemarle Medical Center Thursday, May 19, 2022 leaving his bags behind but holding the hands of two angels dressed in all White. No one said anything because all knew where he was going.
The Glorious and Triumphant Life Celebration events have been methodically orchestrated and will proceed in the following order. Beginning on Friday, May 27, 2022 between the hours of 12Noon and 1pm at Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations Chapel Mr. Rountree will lie in state for a final glimpse for family and friends. A Celebration of Life Service will take place on Friday, May 27, 2022 at 1pm at Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations Chapel.
Immediately following the order of service, an intimate Committal Service will come forth in the Rountree Family Cemetery. It is in this place that his physical temple will remain until time is called into eternity and those who are sleep in Christ will rise first to meet Him in the air.
Although it will be a major adjustment for his family with Melvin no longer being present to enjoy precious moments, all can find comfort realizing he is sitting at the Welcome Table with all of the saints that have gone on before him, beholding the Master’s Glory as he receives his golden keys and his crown of righteousness.
The Compassionate Professionals of Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations are serving the Rountree family with uncompromising dignity.
