Andres Cardenas tells us a James Melroy memorial fund has been established.

Here's the details:

Anyone wishing to make a donation can send a check payable to "The James Melroy Memorial Fund" and mail it to:

James Melroy Memorial Fund
c/o The Press-Telegram

Andres has been working nonstop in honor of James, and we'd like to take a moment to thank him for his unflagging loyalty and tireless service. Efforts like this make us more than just coworkers and associates. It makes us a family.

I'm just one person of many helping.

I kind of thought there was, but you've been the public face of the work so far. Each and every one of you deserves recognition for your hard work.

If they're not committed to remaining behind the scenes, I think it'd be good to know who these folks are. I'm sure many of us would like to thank them for putting in so much time and effort.

Well Ben Villa worked with Jordan High School to get the site. Former staffer Dave Werstine is allowing the use of his house for the reception afterwards.
Here are three people, but there are more. There are those that are or have written stories and others that are copy editing them.
I can't thank them enough.
