Sending Our Condolences

She was the Office Administrator. Beth also served in the Indiana Air National Guard for 12 years. Contributions in her memory can be made to Humane Fort Wayne, Great Dane Rescue, Inc., or Riley Children’s Hospital. Our thoughts are with Beth’s family, friends and colleagues.
ALA is saddened to report that member Michelle Casares passed away in February. She worked at Lichter Law Firm for over 14 years, serving as the Office Manager. Michelle was also a Past President of the South Florida Chapter of ALA. She was deeply involved with the chapter for over a decade and was in the midst of her terms on the Website Committee and Business Partner Relations Committee. “Words do not do justice to describe the goodness that Michelle embodied, her unwavering dedication to her volunteer work associated with this chapter and how integral she was to the success of this organization over many years,” wrote Lilliana Torres, the current South Florida Chapter President. Our sympathies are with those who knew her.
