"Hello! you may or may not know me- but you most likely know Pinky, or Gail.

Her beautiful son, Axel James Markel, tragically took his own life on Friday at the Maryland death metal Deathfest.

And it's been difficult on her and unexpectedly put a strain on the family.

Anything you can do to assist this family in their time of stress and need is beyond greatly appreciated."
