ZALEL--Melvin J.,

died peacefully at the age of 87 at his home in Fort Lauderdale. Mel had both lifelong devoted partnerships and countless loyal loving friends. He practiced law for over 60 years in NYC since graduating from Harvard, providing help to all in need. He served as a member of the Board of Directors for S.A.G.E. and was a lifelong advocate for minorities, including the gay community. Memorial services are planned in Fort Lauderdale and New York City later this year.
