Merle family:
Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will. I am sure that Merle is watching over every single one of you with Charlie now.
Thinking of all my family right now on this branch of our tree.
Love Cuz Ann Dearing 15

Sorry to hear of your loss. I spent a lot of time playing in her home with Jackie .
She was great mom and endured a lot of hard times but God was always there to help.
