Memorial College Fund for Melanie

Our beautiful son Joshua Nicholas White took his own life last Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016. Josh worked at Ski Bowl on Mt. Hood as a ride equipment operator and repairman. He enjoyed his job and felt like he was part of a community there. However,  he struggled with depression and, obviously, has now lost.
Among many loved ones, perhaps the most tragic loss will be felt by his innocent 5 year old daughter, Melanie Noel.
As her grandparents, we of course, have many worries for her future. Chief among them is her ability go to college. The world is changing ever faster, and higher education is even more vital. Frankly, it's hared to succeed without it.
These funds will be placed in an Oregon College Savings account to be used when Melanie is of age.
Thank you in advance for any donation you feel is within your heart and power to give.
