    I grew up living next to Melvin. When we were about 12 or 13 we started a band that we had a good time with. We also went water skiing as teenagers. We always had a good time. He was a great guy and will be missed.

Sorry to hear of Mel's passing...he was always kind to everyone and fun to be around. I can still see him smile! Hopefully fond memories will help the family through their grief...see you on the other side Mel!

I lived down the street from Melvin and only remember a nice, smiling kid who I liked a lot.  So sad to see you leave Melvin.  God bless you.
