To all of my cousin Merle's family this is to let you know that my prayers are with you all. I missed seeing Merle over the past years we were close as kids. I remember going to Connecticut and spending a summer at their home. I think it was Bridgeport. I enjoyed those times and will always have the memories as all that knew Merle will. My sympathy are with all Merle's family. Martha
