I have known Merle Vanloo for as long as I can remember. He was kind to me as a neighborhood kid and when Cherie and I had moved back down the street, he always had a kind word, a gentle smile, and a funny joke. While heaven has gained an angel, the world has lost a wonderful human being. Our condolences to Yvonne, Gary, and Kim and their families. God Speed Merle!

To my Father-in-law, like a Dad to me. We laughed and cried together. Mostly laughed. You are missed so much! I will treasure our conversations and time shared. I will always miss you! Until we meet again, Love... Your daughter-in-law, Brenda
