JD & Family-

So sorry to hear of Melvin&s passing. We always enjoyed seeing your family when visiting the Chapman cousins. I also remember greeting your folks at Purdue games in the concession stands.

I hope you find comfort in the stories and memories you will share in the coming days.

The Bloomingdale Academy Reunions will not be the same. My 1st cousin Mel was a popular person. His friends will feel the loss of his presence and humor.
I will especially miss all my visits with him. My family, sons and daughters and my husband and I wish to express our sympathy for Marie, her sons and their families. I hope Mel doesn&t give the Lord too hard of a time in Heaven.
