Betty and the rest of the family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I had the privilege of having Mel as my Sunday School teacher when I was in fifth grade. His kindness and wisdom had a great impact on myself and my classmates. As an adult, I benefited greatly from Mel's kind words of affirmation and was greatly moved by his steadfast spirit, even in the midst of his journey with Parkinson's. May God's peace be near to you during this difficult time.
