Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this difficult time. My Pops and Melvin shared many good memories fishing, and despite the fact that I forever confused Melvin and Eldon, we all got a good laugh out of it. May your memories provide you comfort as you mourn the loss of this fantastic man.
