    I remember Merle and her entire family to be great friends to our family as we grew up in the same neighborhood and next door to each other. She was a wonderful, kind lady of whom I have very fond memories. My prayers are with the family at this time of sorrow. With love and sympathy, David (Bubba) Holland

  2. Good-by to a very special lady. I spent many nights at their houses, having fun, visiting with Charles Don and Donna. She always made me feel very special. Wish we could be with Donna, Steve and the whole family.

  3. Sweet memory
