Tomorrow Columbus Day would have been Mel's birthday. Mel is my deceased husband. His parents told me when he was born they didn't agree on a name so the doctor signed Columbus L---- on his birth certificate. They had to go to the court house and get his name changed when they had come to an agreement on the name Mel. Mel was a commercial refrigeration mechanic by trade, served his stint proudly in the U. S. army and was a good family man.
