Not sure what to say?

Llewellyn was a very nice man. I spent time on the farm visiting Leslie Munn and enjoyed many meals with food that came from the farm.

Llewellyn was my neighbor for 28 years. As a child, I ran through the corn fields when Charlie was here, good memories. My heart is broken and I miss him desperately. Theresa is a wonderful neighbor and friend as well, none better.They stood strong by each other, always. I knew their relationship, it was wonderful. I don't think I could ever have better neighbors. This is a huge loss for my family, the community, and anyone who knows him. I personally, will never recover.........

A neighbor, friend and respected community member. Llewellyn was well known as the local historian, like his Father Charlies was. Both of them, very respected men. This is a great loss to everyone who knew him. And a great loss to his Partner Theresa who stood by his side for many years. I am deeply saddened for your loss Theresa. And a great loss to all of Wilbraham as well. To Llewellyn's family, please accept my condolences at this time of loss.

My condolences to Llewellyn's entire family and most especially his friend Teresa, in their recent loss. He was a local legend in Wilbraham and will be missed by many. Please take comfort in the love and memories of your friends and family during this difficult time. Karen (formerly of Wilbraham, MA)

I knew Llewellyn since as long as I can remember growing up. Him and my father built a culvert together to route flood water out of a neighbor's basement. My first job was picking corn in the summer on the Merrick farm and he would pay us in rolls of change from the farm stand. I will always cherish the taste of raw sweetcorn right off the cob in the hot summer. Llewellyn taught me how to fix machines at a young age. His attention to detail was inspiring. For example he taught me how to use a...

The room lit up when you walked in. It was a pleasure to know and work with you, a man of many hats worn, and worn well, in Wilbraham.

Llewellyn was a long time friend, neighbor and mentor. His encyclopedic knowledge of Wilbraham
history was quickly shared with anyone who had a similar interest. Our family was just one of many who visited the Merrick Farm Stand on a regular basis during the growing season and when serving as Adams Cemetery Commissioner we frequently had "over the fence" meetings about both farm and Cemetery issues. The Merrick Family were long-time supporters of the local history museum called...

I was one of those that Mr. Merrick mentored on the farm around 2002-2004. I was so happy that he was willing to hire me as the only female at the time and he treated me the same as all the boys. I learned so much from him and loved working there. His calm, gentle, and kind presence will be greatly missed.

Ms. Munn,

My family & I are sorry for your loss. We met you & Mr. Merrick at Life Care while visting our aunt, TeeTee. We always admired the love that you had shown Mr. Merrick. May you find peace in the coming days.
