Robert and Mervyn have been life long friends since school days. They even came to America together. When I married Robert in 1973, Mervyn and Elsa were the first to welcome me and since then we have been family loving and caring for each other. We even made Mervyn our first born Tamara's godfather. Unfortunately both Rob and Mervyn were victims of Parkinson disease which changed their quality of life. God knew best when he took them and now they are together watching over us from above.
The Remedios Family send our heartfelt condolences to Elsa, David, Susan, Jonathan, Stephanie and their families and pray that the Lord gives them courage and strength to bear this great loss.
May Mervyn's soul Rest in Peace!
