I am sorry to hear of Mel's passing. He was a very old friend of my father's, I believe from either Everett Jr. College or the Navy (or both.) My father passed away decades ago but I still remember as a small child, visiting Mr. Kerwin here in California on our big road trip from Washington to Disneyland. I know my father valued his friendship. Rest in peace.

Dearest Mel: While working for you on a temp basis on a couple of occasions some years ago, I found you to be one of the nicest people I have ever met. I always held you in such high regard. You were not only the best of the best in your legal profession, and as I have become aware, the best of the best in all that you were in every area of your life, you were so sweet with that certain smile and twinkle in your eye that was very charming ... just adorable.

With so much admiration and respect for the genuinely great and giant of a person that you were, I hold a special place in my heart for you, and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to your wonderful adoring son and partner Patrick, and to all of your family and those who you loved and loved you.

May you rest in peace dearest Mel. You will surely be missed.

With fond memories and love,
Marialena Castorina

Mel gave so much to the Probate Referee Associations with the Waiver issue.

Even though I only saw him at our CPRA conferences, he was one of the nicest people that I have ever met.

He always seemed so pleased to see you.

Mel will be missed by me and so many many more.
