I received an excellent suggestion this morning:
"I was shocked and very sad to learn Mike Melrose passed away. I enjoyed working with Mike very much at True West and always appreciated his easy going, good natured manner, and of course especially his humor.
"Even though I've been back in the Midwest over 4 years now, I always hoped I'd have an opportunity to see him again sometime... Mike was quite a guy. He'll be remembered.
"My best to you and everyone at True West."
P.S. Would it be possible to post a picture of Mike on your blog? I think people would appreciate it. He was certainly a big part of the True West family.
I found this photo I took of Melrose and one of his girlfriends, at El Encanto (which he could never pronounce, by the way). He's wearing his "I'm Your Huckleberry" T-shirt, and his look says it all. I can hear him saying, "Hey now," as only he could.
