We have such great memories of Merle when he lived in Tempe, Arizona. His best friend, Graham Scott (my Dad) and he were hunting & fishing buddies. When we came to visit, our kids would run down to Merle's house to fish off it dock and feed the ducks. He was so patient with them, helping get hot dogs on hooks to catch and release those whopper catfish at The Lakes. Our kids are now in their 30s and STILL talk about those days. Floating around in his 'party boat'.... fun days indeed.

We were so happy when Merle came to WA with June. He was now surrounded by the family he didn't have He just glowed with happiness. We brought Elaine (my Mom) for a visit one last time before she could no longer travel. It was such a great visit. We can't express our heartbreak of his passing and we are so sad that the last time we were coming through town, he was on his way to the doctors and we didn't get to see him. BUT what an amazing life he had....the stories of flying with the Air Force and the reunions from those times. But he also lived in the present and was so involved in the retirement community he lived in. A life well lived, surrounded by family and friends. Now, he's hanging out with 'Bonnie & Clyde' as he referred to my folks. Rest In Peace, Merle.... We shall miss you very much. Brian & Su Scott and the rest of the Scott Family.
