I knew Mel briefly while we both served as volunteers at Catholic Family Services in Portland. He was a pleasure to be around and I grew to respect him as a man of God who was willing to and did share his many talents. My condolences to the family but I am sure you can take comfort in the fact that he is with the Lord. May we all get there someday.
