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 .
