A drive through Houston is dotted with memories of Mel Powers. High rise buildings, great restaurants, amazing homes and sub-divisions have Mel's signature. He had a passion for life that was contagious. While those who are left behind will miss him greatly, we know he is in a better place. Probably at the helm of some awesome yacht or skiing down an amazing mountain. He will always be alive in our hearts and we will all treasure the fondest of memories. We love you Mel, now and forever!
