We are sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to you. Mel will be greatly missed. He was a man of many talents and we viewed him with much respect and love. He was always there for family; his kindness and generosity knew no bounds. And who could forget his (shall we say) dry sense of humor. Many thanks for all your selflessness Mel. Love, Karen and Mark
