My most sincere and deepest condolences to the Diggs Family. I only knew Melvin (as I always called him) for a short time in Washington. I found out they we were probably cousins through the Diggs Family. Melvin was a very kind person with humility and always a smile whenever you talked to him. May the Lord give you all strength in this time of sorrow and may Melvin Rest with God until we meet again.
