    Dear aunt Chris, Matt and Ryan, I am very sorry for your loss. Mel was a natural leader, a strong and warm man. He was always very kind to me. I remember our last few discussions where I was practicing my French after moving to Montreal and how happy your father was as we talked. I will miss him.
