    I enjoyed the opportunities I had to speak with your mom. I first met her at Clee's funeral and was so impressed with how she conducted herself as a southern lady. The next opportunity to meet & speak with her was at the beach house. Thank you Merritt family for sharing your family, memories, and mom with me. I know she will be missed. She was a sweet lady.
