Mr Melvin will be deeply missed by myself and my twin sons. My boys looked up to him and he showed them so much as young men. Even if he didn't feel well he always asked about my son's. And say he's praying. Ms Sherry we appreciate you and everything you and Mr Melvin have done for us and are forever grateful and humbled.
