My deepest sympathies to Melvin’s family. I’m a former high school classmate and was able to reconnect with Melvin when a gang of us started getting together for breakfast before COVID hit. He was always such a gentleman in school and I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to see him again. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Nancy Tyson Wertz
