I pray that God's peace and comfort be upon you all at this difficult time of grief. Your mom is now safe in the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ... free from any pains and sufferings... rejoicing with the throngs of angels which include many loved ones who had gone before us... even my father-in-law Papa Emilio Agustin and my dearly departed wife Norie Agustin Manzo whom she met before during our Christmas Day celebration. They will be among those who will welcome her home in heaven. WHAT A GLORIOUS HOMECOMING... PRAISE THE LORD!!!

To the Demers family, I was very saddened to read that Merle had passed away. She was an incredible woman. I knew her for many years as I did her medications for her. I would stop by to see her from time to time to just chat with her. I am happy that she is now at peace and with her husband, your father Maurie, as he was called by many of us. My heartfelt condolences to all of you in the Demers family.

To all of Merle’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss, Merle was a lovely lady. My husband Jim lived next door to Merle for the past year. We will miss her smiling face as she cruised around the halls at Henley and participated in activities at the nursing station. She was a lot of fun, she made us laugh. RIP Merle

A life well lived and full of love. Thinking of you and your family....Rest in peace Merle
