  1. To the Roth and extended families, I would like to express my most heartfelt condolences for the loss of Joseph M. Roth.
    I have known Joe and his family since the sixties and have shared untold experiences with them.
    I last visited Joe at his Venice Beach apartment in the late 80’s.
    Although we lost contact shortly after that, I remember Joe fondly. I hope he is at peace and that he enjoys plenty of asins and etsels ;.
