Mike and I are sad to hear this news. Mike worked with Merv. Merv was a young man but he was always nice to my Dad "Pepsie" Hale. When Dad fell ill and could no longer work and Dad had given up drinking, Merv was one of the few friends that would take a moment and come visit with him. Rest in peace Merv and may that laugh keep ringing in our ears!! 🙏
