Our deepest sympathy to your family in the loss of Merle. I knew her at the time my father married Lillian Jane Edgar (Clendenning) but had not seen Len and Merle for many years. I have information concerning a cemetery plot Lillian owns(ed). Your parents discussed transferring ownership to their names but nothing was done before Suzanne died. If you could call us we will explain this more clearly and you can get the transfer arranged with the cemetery. e-mail address is a,m,holt@ody,ca and address is #1010 - 1985 Richmond Street, London, Ont, N5X 0A6

I was so sorry to hear about Merle. She was a lovely and kind woman She was always very kind to my mother, Clara Cardone, and her friendship was very much appreciated. Over the years I received many notes from Merle and really appreciated her positive view and love for life. I am so glad that we had the opportunity to visit her last spring when we were in Mount Forest. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

To Merle's Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Merle was such a charming and thoughtful woman, who was always cheerful with never a disturbing word to say about others. When I was away, she always kept an eye on my house and when I returned each summer, it was fun to visit with her again. When she moved to Birmingham, Merle was missed in the community near Main Street, but I enjoyed visiting with her there. Again, my deepest sympathies to you all. Kathy Davies

Our deepest regrets for the passing of Merle. I will always have good memories of her and your family as a young neighbourhood boy growing up, and when we moved back to town there was always a friendly greeting when we would pass the house while out on our walks. Merle was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed.
