Uncle Merm was a great man. He did these little things that made me feel cared for. I remember him comforting me at the funeral home when Grandfather died. I have great memories at my aunt & uncle's house at Christmas, my grandparent's 50th anniversary & numerous other times. My dream house would be built 60s with a living room having a bay window for the Christmas tree & a pink tiled bath. My last conversation after Jock, Josh & Diane were talking, I said I was the quiet one & he said it wasn't a bad thing. I really only had one uncle but he broke the mold. Thank you for making my life richer. I love you Uncle Merm!
