I knew Merl in Oakwood Oklahoma. We shared MANY good times with our family get togethers for dinners, playing games, and rounding up all of the kids when it was time to go home. My sincere condolences to Melissa and Billy...your Dad was a good man at heart; a sincere soul that lost it's stroke. I trust that you will treasure your fondest memories. My condolences to Merl's current family ... I trust that you will treasure the years you gave had with Merl. Offering Prayers for all of you.
