the Mellettes were family friends, lived one street over on Warner. Mike and I played on the same LL team, both pitchers. that one season, we lost every practice game - then went 18-0. We both had 9-0 records as pitchers. he pitched the All-Star game, I pitched the next year. Mike's and my mom went to all the games together. Mike's brother Joe was also on the team and often played at the VHS talent shows, playing guitar and singing Elvis. Mike was a big strong guy, but even big kids growing up can break and that's what Mike did some years later, taking his own life. Best discipline for children: giving them so much love they are strong in and of themselves, in their heart; it makes the tougher discipline so much easier.
