Mel Roth: How You Can Help

On December 26th, the unthinkable happened and Mel Pitcher-Roth was taken from this world. Mel was a loving and caring person who always went out of her way to help others. Her grieving husband Tony and beloved niece Rachel have been struggling with lawyers and all of the unexpected things that happen when the person that used to take care of everything (including you) is the one that has passed. Many of you knew Mel and had experienced her generosity and nurturing first hand. We appreciate all of your offers of support and have established this memorial fund in her honor.

We really wnted to thank everyone for your continued support in our family's time of need. However, we have discovered that between horribly unexpected legal expenses and our desire to honor Mel's memory towards her charities (which we haven't been able to even consider donating to), we need anything anyone could possibly still give.

A donation to this fund for Mel won't bring her back to us, we will continue to grieve over our loss, but any small amount is appreciated.
