It is hard to imagine the world without Merci. Back when we worked at Marigold School whenever she cleaned out her garden she would bring in lots of bulbs and slips of plants for us to take home if we wanted to. With her encouragement I would always take some home to plant. Now in the Spring when my Lilacs and Iris bloom I will remember how lucky I was to know her. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for this great loss.
