  2. Those of us who were lucky enough to be born into the Thall family have had aunts and uncles who have been excellent role models. Uncle Melvin and his siblings have taught us how to live and how to treat others. Melvin Thall was a special man. He certainly knew how to have fun; I remember how he would gleefully celebrate life with his brothers when he came home to visit. But he was responsible and a practising adult. And he was a loving man – I especially was impressed by the way he showed his love for his mother and his sisters. We’re going to miss you, Uncle Melvin.
