Terrie and family - I am so sorry. So many hugs and prayers for you all. And Terrie, to bring a smile to your face - remember our "band"? We were practicing One Tin Soldier and Melvin's voice was cracking during the verses from low to high. We had fun, and I'll never forget.

To Melvin's family, especially Terrie, Melvin and I were high school classmates and I have always remembered how kind he was to me. I was new to the school and he was one of the first to make me feel welcome, always with a ready smile, easy laugh and kind word. He was a genuine and gentle soul even back then. We don't always know the difference we make in the lives of others, but know that his kindness made a difference in mine.
