Melvin will be missed so much on very Saturday. He was a poker buddy and I played poker with him for as long as my Uncle Doyle Prosser lived at Claysburg. I will miss him so much! Our poker table was full of characters and he was one of "Us" I felt he was family.
I am SO sorry for your lost. He was a sweetheart. (I am Jessie Napier's daughter)
