My thoughts and prayers are with beautiful Addison and family. Merry was a bright, sweet, hard working person, who could brighten your day when it wasn't going good. She was always happy at work and when speaking about Addison she would light up. I miss hearing her heals going down the hall. It was a pleasure knowing Merry and her daughter and meeting her family. She will never be forgotten but will be missed terribly.

Words cannot express the collective sorrow we feel for your loss. Merry was a respected, hardworking, and dedicated board member of our league. Always cheerful and caring, she dedicated her time for the good of the area's youth. With Addison at her side, she never missed a meeting. She will be sorely missed. May she rest in peace.

Merry...I just wanted to say thank you. Because of you I am the person who I am today. Thank you for keeping your promise. Although I can't express how sorry and sad I am that you had to leave this world so early in your life I'm happy that you were able to experience motherhood and the love of a child before you left. Through your family and friends you will be forever loved, forever remembered, and you will always remain forever young

Merry - You will be missed so much by all that knew you and your beautiful spirit. The lives you touched will never be the same without you. Your wonderful smile and your laugh – everyone knows the laugh, the one that you did not even have to know the content of the discussion, just hearing you laugh made others laugh. Your caring ways will be missed by so many. Know that we will keep your memory alive and we will never forget the remarkable person you were. The entire family will ensure that Addison never forgets the amazing spirit that was her Mother.
All my love, now and forever - Aunt Denise

I can remember meeting Merry when she was 7 years old with a trip to adventure land with Faith. Our hearts are heavy from hearing of your loss. Kathy and Ralph Sigona

Merry, you were so special to me from the moment I met you as a baby. You were such a happy child and I loved the time that your mom let me move in with the 2 of you and we all lived together. Those were some of the best times in my life. Right now my heart is aching from losing you. I know I will get better and probably through getting to know Addison who I think will take after her wonderful mother. I love you Merry and I will miss you always.

With all my love.
