Mel wasn't a close friend -- I hadn't seen him in many years when we last met at Peter Bergman's memorial service -- but he was always a dear friend. I treasure the piece of petrified wood he found and gave me on a walk near his home in Santa Fe, back in the '80s. So very sorry that we'll never meet again "this side of Paradise." He was a mensch.
