Melvin has been an important part of my life since the early days of Faith Lutheran, where he and Avis became family friends with my parents. Kind, funny, dedicated to church and family, Melvin was one of the first adults outside of family I felt comfortable enough to talk with. He was a fine partner to Avis.

And Avis and my mother Azlee were great friends and partners, too--in anything from garage sales to eating out at Mexican restaurants to driving to Seminole to shop at Wal-Mart. (They were also great partners in "crime," as they were activists who cared about social and civic issues affecting Andrews County.) And through it all, Melvin was there as a strong support.

After both Avis and mother died, Melvin and I got together every time I was back in Andrews, for lunch and long conversations. I am indebted to him for book recommendations, for oil field updates and for the simple pleasure of his company. His was a life well-lived. I will miss him.
