  2. It is with great sadness I have learned of Melvin’s passing. Life is so short, and it’s good to see that, since our high school graduation, Melvin has had a very full life.
    Many thanks to him for serving our country in one of the most dangerous wars yet to be fought.
    His kindness and caring are evident in his love for the role of Santa Claus.

    May you, his family, be comforted by the peace that comes from God.
