BRENHAM - "Happy Birthday" is a song Melvin Kelm of Brenham has heard 100 times...for each of the years he's been alive.

Friends and family, including his wife of 77 years, Ruby, gathered to wish Melvin a happy birthday among the many photos and relics from his past.

The birthday boy was very grateful for everyone's support.

"Everybody, the family, friends, and so forth, helped me through all these years," Melvin said.

You might recognize Ruby and Melvin from their Names and Faces story we aired here on KBTX earlier this month. We've provided a link to that story along with this article.
