Joanne and family:
Wow! Merle will be DEEPLY missed but how lucky we are to have been blessed by such a fun, loving and generous soul.
I can't tell you what a blessing the "A Team" volunteers were to the countless events hosted by the Toledo area American Diabetes Association. You name the event and Merle, Joanne and crew were there from sun up until the event was over giving 110%. Please know how much your kindness and generosity truly meant and please everyone else note Joanne and Merle were a couple who spent much of their "golden years" volunteering an average of 40 hrs a week helping others at what they did best, giving back through warmth, kindness and good old fashioned hard work. You needed something done, they got it done. What gems! There's another angel in Heaven without a doubt.
Peace and love to Joanne and family. And remember, we never lose the people we love even to death.
