Funeral Fund in memory of Melina Tomel

We're at a loss for words sharing this devastating news. The sudden and uncertain cause of death of our beloved sister, Melina Tomel. Pictured on the left side of this photo.

Melina left us at the young age of 31 with so much more life to live on Monday, March 25th, 2019. She leaves behind her father, Raymond, a retired Navy Veteran, step-mother, Diane, mother, Linda, and three siblings, Sarina, Amanda and Joshua. 

She was a Yankee fan, and her favorite player was Alex Rodriguez. She had a contagious laugh and was a good story teller, and loved animals of all kinds, especially cats. She identified herself as a member of the LGBTQ group. 

The family is struggling with all of this, while still waiting on answers to come. We're looking to raise funds for her funeral and memorial service. Any contribution, great or small, will be very much appreciated.
