We lived caddy corner across the street from Melvin for many years. We will never forget Melvin. He was an awesome neighbor and the sweetest man; he always chatted with our kids and we would see him out walking nearly every day, even on the coldest of days. Everyone on the block watched out for our dear Melvin. We were so sad when he moved in to the Walnut Grove Retirement Center, but our son, Tyler, worked there through high school in the dining room, so he was able to still see Melvin frequently. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
