I'm saddened to learn that Merle passed away.

You have my heartfelt condolences.

Kevin Henderson, Halstead KS

I am so sorry to hear of Merle's passing. My heartfelt sympathies to you and your family.

I will miss that sense of humor. RIP, cousin.

My deepest condolences to Ramona, girls and entire Burkhart family. Merle, you made a huge impact on my life. You treated me like I was part of the family even though I was far from that. You will always be missed, my fishing friend.

I am so sorry to hear of Merle's passing and am sorry for your loss. I worked for Merle at Hesston Corporation in the mid 70's. He was a great mentor, a person of integrity, and someone to admire. I consider the short time we worked together to have been a gift and a privilege.
The world could use more like him.

Romona, please know you are in our prayers. You may not remember, but we went to Farry together. I know these are difficult time and wanted to let you know of our support.

I will always remember Merle as witty, corge and very much a gentlman. Always enjoyed visiting with Merle and Ramona. Wished I could of been there today. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and family.
