So saddened at the loss of Merle, condolences to Steve and family. Merle was such a lovely funny lady. Our 2 week cruise many years ago will forever be in our memory as one of the highlights of our later years.

Our thoughts are with you all

Herb and I were very lucky to get to know Merle. She was a wonderful woman with a very funny sense of humor. I will really miss not seeing her when I get to Florida. My sincere condolences to you Steve and all her family.

Our heartfelt condolences to Steve & the family. It was always nice to see someone our age at family gatherings throughout the years when the Young's got together .
