    There’s another star in the heavens tonight. We shall forever remember the great times we’ve shared with Merv down at Citrus Hills RV Park in Florida. Our Sherman Hills Golf league will never be the same without him. RIP my friend.

    Cory & Shelley (Leighann & Paul),

    So shocked & so very sorry to read about your Dad’s death. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.

    We saw your Dad driving down our road just 2 days before in one of his antique cars. He looked so happy. We know how much he loved repairing those antique cars!!

    We’ll miss seeing him go by with his big friendly wave.

    Our thoughts are with you & remembering what great neighbours your family has been for the past 35 years. Regards, Sandra & Doug.

    We were shocked to hear of your Dad’s passing. There are no words that can fill the emptiness in your heart and perhaps it will help to know others care. Remember the good times.

    Dear Cory, Shelley and Family:

    I was so saddened to hear of your Father’s passing. I worked with Merv for many years on the milk truck. He was a great person to work with.
