To the Roth Family, deepest sympathy to your family for your recent loss. The Bible indicates that God can help us to endure any challenge we may face (1 Corinthians 1:9). Oftentimes he may use family or friends who share the same pain to assist us. May you draw a measure of comfort from your loved ones and your Creator during this time (1Corinthians 1:3).

Carolyn, I can’t imagine the grief that you are confronting at this time. However I if it is ok, I would like to provide an optimistic thought at this difficult time. I had the opportunity to meet with the entire Roth family today. What an impressive family. I know that they will be there to support you in the difficult days ahead. I hope it’s ok to say that I feel a certain closeness to your family even though distance now separates us. I will miss Melvin tremendously. God’s speed tomyou and your family.
