    Aunt Evelyn and Terri. Please know that I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Merrill’s passing. I was glad that I got to spend time with y’all the time I was home before you moved. I will keep you both in my prayers. Sending you love.

    Words cannot express the sadness my heart feels with the loss of Merrill and my heart aches for Evelyn and Terri. He will live on in stories that are told and memories that are shared as well as kept in private. With all my love and deepest sympathy I will do what I can to help the grieving and sorrow you feel every minute.

    Evelyn and Terri, you know I loved my “pickup man” and there will never be another who can call me his pick up girl. 2020 may have prevented physical contact, but none of you were far from my thoughts ever. God would have never wanted Merrill to suffer and apparently needed his humor elsewhere. We will laugh together soon while he watches over us. Never hesitate to reach out. Much ❤️
