Uncle Merlin, You will be missed dearly. I am so happy I was able to spend time with you in the nursing home a few months ago. I will always remember helping push yours and Uncle Butch's race cars up on the trailers and routing for both of you on the track. I also will never forget watching Poltergist and Miss Kitty coming up behind you and sniffing your hand and you jumped a foot off the couch. Please give Mom, dad, Uncle George and Grandma Big hugs and kisses for me. I miss all of you dearly. Kris, and Lorri, I am so sorry I couldn't be at your dad's funeral. I was very ill and couldn't be out. My thoughts and Prayers are with all of you.
