Saturday mornings at 8:30 will not be the same. Merriel would arrive at 8:30 on the dot, for her hair appointment. We would
talk about her vacations with Fred, what she baked that week and of course her family, which she was so proud of and of course maybe a little local gossip, then off she would go at 9 with a "see you next Sat., same time unless I need you before." I will miss you Merriel this Saturday and the Saturdays to follow. Rest In Peace.
To Jeff, Norm and Families my deepest condolences. Marsha Williams
