The Merrills send their deepest condolences to our good friends, the Sperrys, on your Mom’s passing. She was our neighborhood’s “great Ma” to all us youngsters. She was kind, patient and loved to laugh. You were fortunate to have her in your lives and that she could enjoy all of your little ones as well.
