I am so sorry that your mother is no longer with us. Aunt Merle is now an angel and was a loving and caring woman. My deepest sympathy to all.

Dear Cousins, I am sorry for your loss. Aunt Merle was always kind to me, and I was so proud she was in our family. When I adopted my first daughter from China, I brought her to a family reunion. Aunt Merle was the first to approach me and take Zoe from my arms to hold. She was a good woman and I am sad to know she has passed.
My heart is with you.
