To Mel's Fans and Friends - A special thank you
A statement from Mel's family on his passing -
As many of you know, our father passed November 19, 2017. He had suffered from a prolonged illness over the last 22 months. Though he was not able to return to the road, to the music he loved and the path God carved for him - your love and support didn't go unnoticed by him, or his family. We know he was grateful for the cards, calls and visits.
Our father cared deeply for many causes but two were particularlly dear to him, the Stuttering Foundation and the Shriners Hospital for Children Should you wish to honor him with a gift to either, he would surely be happy. The Stuttering Foundation wrote a particularly remarkable post on his life, it's worth reading as well.
In the coming months, we will be sharing more on his website of his legacy - in music and life.
Thank you for your kind words and endearing memories of our father. They have carried us through this difficult time.
