Judy Richard and I are so shocked to hear the sudden passing of Mel he was a super guy our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time so sorry

To Judy, Shannon et all – Our sincere condolences to you all for your loss. Mel certainly had a presence, was well known wherever he went, ad was a valued member of the Newfoundland Brokerage team. He helped me cut my teeth in the brokerage business along with Frank O’Grady and others. I remember all to well the great banter between Frank (confectionary) and Mel (grocery) as we sat on the sidelines with smiles laughing at the two of them for hours. I can only guess they have found each other and are at it again enjoying each others company. Hoping you are cherishing the memories as I am. Wishing you all the best.

Judy
