School Story:

I am still close to my TJ graduated classmates in Richmond which get together about once every couple of months for lunches. This core group have remained together after all these years telling the same stories over and over each time we meet.

After TJ I Graduated from Virginia Tech in 1966 with a BA Degree in Political Science. I joined Pfizer Inc. after graduation and worked for them for over 40 years retiring in 2007. I was then up until March of 2013 a Pfizer Ambassador, one of 12 individuals who worked Medical Conference around the globe. I also am very active as an American Heart Association Board Member and have an Adjunct Faculty Appointment at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

The photo below is of Elsie and myself at The University of Como in Como, Italy. We took a cooking class there while on a trip to Lake Como with The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. We love to travel and will be traveling to Thailand, Kuala Lumpor and Singapore this summer.

Smiley

It is with great sadness that I received the news about "Smiley". Think about how one gets the knickname SMILEY.We had just had lunch together at Padow's. Smiley  was upbeat as he always was when we all gathered. That day, Russell, Billy Stanley, Sidney and me shared the fellowship that we always did. Missing that day was George Shear who almost always came with Smiley.

We are greatfull for the friendships that we have and will miss Smiley because of who is was in our lives.

Classmates: I was and you were all very fortuate to have Billy Collins as a classmate and friend. It is certainly a sad time for us all. In reflection Billy was a very strong individual. I spoke with Billy twice in the last month and those conversations will stay with me in memory of such a wonderful friend. May G-D bless Billy's soul and shephard him in eternity.

With sincerely

 

Melvin

Marilyn: Thank you for your comments. I did not post this but it was published in The Richmond Times Dispatch last Monday. I was moved to write it as a former representative who worked for me, some years ago married a Physician and now they have three children. She texted me telling me that her husband had to go into the ICU that morning as he had a very ill patient. In Wilmington, Delaware there were 13 patients with COVID-19. She was certainly concerned about her husband;s safety and that he might bring back into their home the virus. Marilyn, so many of our health care providers are in "Harms Way" and if we stop and think for a moment, this is OUR defense and recognition should be given to these true hero's. I am not familiar with SKF's vaccine. I do know that many entities are working tirelessly to develop one. The current hot topic is Plaquenil and a Z=Pak. My former company developed the Z=Pak and as a former Manager, my company introduced it to the Medical Profession some years ago.
