On Sunday January 28 2024, Marilyn Jay from Canada left the following message for DANIEL TRAICUS: "Melanie died this week. Her song Roller Skates and Maria Muldar's Midnight at the Oasis still remind me of you and what a sweet guy you were, even after all these years. Which is strange since both those songs came out a couple years after us. Brains are odd. And so sorry I wasn't myself last time we ran into each other. My daughter did, does, and I think always will, make me a crazy person. Hope all is well with you."
