    So sorry to hear about Merrianne. I thought she
    was getting better. I had talked to her on facebook
    several weeks ago. First time I had talked to her
    in a long time. It was really good to hear from her. I hadn’t talked to her for a very long time.
    We used to have some good times together. Will be
    thinking of you and your family. Take care and maybe I will get to talk to you some time.

    Aunt Merrianne; You will always be remembered in my heart as the most caring and sweetest Aunt and person I know. God Took you home to be with Grandma and Grandpa, My Daddy, Uncle Frank and Uncle Richard, Susan, Eugene, Barbara and Buddy in paradise. I wished there hadn’t been so many miles between us and I could have seen you again. You are so loved, so greatly by so many. Rest in Peace. I love you.
