  • I will be among those who will miss Mel. We spent many hours discussing solutions to challenges many of us continuously face. His ideas were often practicle, feasable and easy to implement. It is unfortunate that he wasn't able to stay with us longer to continue all of the excellent work in which he took part. - Posted by: Vic Pereira (Colleague and Friend) on: Oct 23, 2018
