Testimonials from "Dying On My Feet My Journey Times Two"


Pat Piazza: English instructor, Counselor, Evangel Academy

Melvin, I really enjoyed your book, although I must admit, it was really hard to read. I’ve always had a lot of respect for you; I have even more respect for you know. It had to have been difficult to deal with all of the things that you guys had to endure. I can’t imagine having had to go through that. It brought memories of my dad, he used to own a grocery store too and he made sure that the vegetables were fresh and that people were fed even though some of them could not pay. What a great book, everyone should read it.

I loved it. Some parts were difficult to read because they were such painful times. Makes me admire you even more. The part about the grocery store owner was awful but made me proud of my dad. He had ticket books for families and always let them charge their groceries. Thanks again for sharing your remarkable story!  Pat Piazza; Academic counselor, Evangel Academy, Shreveport, La.

Your love and faith for God is so strong, until I felt it myself as I read your book.

Through it all you kept the faith and you held on to God’s unchanging hand and I just want to thank you…, keep doing what you are doing and be blessed! 

Dr. Milton L. McGrew; Pastor, Friendship Baptist Church, Benton, La:

Man…, I love your book; I never knew all of that about you and how you've persevered throughout your life. I can hardly put it down; I’m almost through reading it. I’m gone give it to my daughter to read after I finish, she really needs to read it. Man that book is good; I am really enjoying it…!

Jeremiah “Rev” Coleman:

Chief, this is a powerful book man; we have a genius right here among us. The way you express things and make it so clear is amazing. I usually don’t read much, but man…; I have a hard time putting your book down. This book should do very well, If a guy like me that don’t read much is smitten, I know people that read a lot will enjoy it.

"Mothers and Their S'Men" an introspective view at mothers rearing their sons


A brief peek into Melvin Lars’ back yard as we explore relationships of mothers and their sons and possible, contributory, circumstances that may have been indelibly involved in the decisions Melvin’s mother employed in rearing her children .

Melvin was reared to be self sufficient in all areas of his life; Bernice (mom) reared four (4) children, two (2) sons and two (2) daughters.

A line in Marmion one of Walter Scott’s poems, “oh what a tangle web we weave when first we practice to deceive,” could have assisted in describing his mother in her early years of impulsivity and immaturity.

This young, impulsive, immature, “child,” mother, definitely had major challenges in her personal life as well as trying to rear four (4) children.

Melvin’s instructional and administrative background has afforded him the opportunity to work in “blue ribbon” schools and well as those that were in desperate need of academic and disciplinary leadership. 

He has engaged in; intense, respectful, well meaning and sometimes contentious, in-depth discussions with thousands of mothers. Their multifaceted, vocations, includes but is not limited to; corporate, instructional, service orientated, stay at home, or factory positions. Their religious and/or spiritual beliefs, academic accomplishments and academic challenges, as well as their marital status often factored into the discussions.

Our quest to insure that the voices of the world’s mothers are diverse, prompted, Mother’s and Their S’Men to cover a multiplicity of ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds scanning a multiplicity of locations. 

Some of the states represented include but are not limited to: New York, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, California, Mexico, Canada and others.

Two hundred-fifty (250-300) to three hundred additional mother’s voluntarily participated in these findings by completing the “mom’s” survey.

Mothers and Their S’Men explores a deeply introspective, plethora of ideas, ideals, and opinions into the relationships mother’s form with their sons; giving rise to the questions, are these relationships healthy or hazardous

Mothers and Their S’Men, is intended to meticulously engage the reader with researched, chilling, pensive views of the varying attitudes of mothers and how their life’s experiences deeply impacts/impacted their methodologies in rearing their sons covering several decades.
