Many memories of Merle going back to Scout Camp days
at Carlos State Park in the 40's. Next was medical school and finally at Swedish Hospital where he was a resident radiologist and I as a beginning family doc we had many encounters that were always enjoyable. These memories are a blessing to me. Alex was my home and when visiting cousins in Evansville, stopped in at Bah's Store many times.Sympathy to the Bah Family.

I will always have fond memories of Pa Bah. He survived all of the tribulations of our teenager craziness, and brought many smiles throughout the many years. I will always think of Merle trying to figure out how to father two totally different daughters, and loving them unconditionally.

Merle lived a good life, he loved his family, friends, Fishing, wintering in the warm south. But most of all the shinning star of his life his Grandson Kieran. May he rest in peace knowing that he was loved back.
