  3. Sincerest sympathy from George and me on Melvin’s death. We were both teachers at Morell High School and Melvin was in my first English Class. When I saw his age on my class list I was a bit intimidated as he was a few months older than me. However, when I got to meet him in class, I could not have wished for a nicer, kinder, gentler person who was very keen to learn. He is definitely one of my great first memories of my teaching career. May he now rest in peace and may you, his family, be comforted by caring friends and loving memories. God bless you all.
