Dr merle and family. My deepest sympathy during your time of grieving. I love the pics of your dad. That is how I remember him. About 30t years ago when I was lucky enough to find a doctor that wouldn’t give up on you.
I hope remembering all the wonderful memories you were able to share with your father for all these years brings you comfort

What I wonderful, brilliant, inciteful and kind man. Tens of thousands of
lives were improved and touched by this amazing man. I learned so much from reading his books and then during the 5 years I worked for him. What a legend. May God hold you all in his arms and comfort you during this difficult time. Karen Frizelis, APN.
