    So Sorry for your loss, Mr Roth was such a kind man. We would think of him often whenever we would pass through the neighborhood. I had the pleasure of spending some time with him at the hospital where we were able to rekindle some fond memories we shared. He will be missed and forever in our hearts. Vince and Linda Guisande
