    Jim and Stephanie, so sorry to hear that Merrie posted away. She was a beautiful person, always cared more about others than herself. She told me last time we met how much she loved you both. Jim, you”rescued” and have her such a wonderful life. Stephanie, she was so proud of you. She will be missed. God bless you and I pray he comforts you as you mourn. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Diana Jordan, dijordan55@yahoo.com
