Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one and send you my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from God's word at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29. Heartfelt prayers are with you during this difficult time.
To the family members of Merrede. I have probably met several of you through the years. I had made a couple of trips to see Merrede. One with my daughter. I was very sad to hear about this as it had been several months since I had talked with her and I noticed she hadn't been on fb for awhile. Many good memories with Merrede through the years as my family had known her as well through church and church camp. Her sense of humor always stood out with a little bit of sarcasm that she could always make people smile. I pray for you all and Mary as I have gotten to know you well, hon if you are reading this through our trips as you and your mama came to visit us as well as holding you as a baby. I want to tell you your mama loved you so much. Probably more than you will ever know. She loved family and all of you. I will keep you in prayers and pray God fills your sadness with happiness and good memories. God bless you.
Merrede was one of our young people in the Corps when Sandy and I were stationed at St. Louis Temple (Salvation Army) Corps. We shared some very treasured times with Merrede. She was one of God's blessings to us as her pastors. Because of Jesus - never alone!
