Sorry for your loss. I remember Melvin from grade school as we usually sat close together as our last names both started with E. I enjoyed the video from his life and I am thankful for the faith in Jesus our Savior and Lord he has demonstrated in his life. for me it really does put a focus on my life as we are the same age and have to remember to count our blessings that God has given us. God bless!
