God bless a wonderful person and all her family. I have known Merilyn since kindergarten, we graduated together, I was in their wedding and the only thing that is good of all our memories is she is at peace and passed away peacefully. She will be greatly missed and to her husband and their children and their families this isn't easy for sure. My prayers will be with you all.
