My deepest sympathies go out to you. He was a wonderful man and one that I’m glad to have know growing up. How many Saturday nights did we spend listening to his stories and having a “good ol’ chat” with him sitting in the rocking chair by the fire in the kitchen or in the living room. So many fond memories that will never be forgotten. Love to you all. Rest In Peace Merv.
