My deepest condolences to Mrs. Thoresen and daughter Merrille. It was a great privilege to play football for Mr. Thoresen. He had a positive influence during my years at NFA. It was the lean years for us as a team, but it never entered my mind as a player, as to the leadership he provided to us. During the season, the paper questioned our mental aspect of playing games week after week. To quote Coach Thoresen, "It will make you better citizens." I never forgot his words, and I...

Dear Carol and Merrilee,
I had the true honor of being "Bert's neighbor, golfing buddy, dog sitter and friend. Everytime I use his old golf clubs I think of him. There are so many wonderful stories to be told about such a incredible person. I send you my heartfelt condolances. Dennis

My condolences to Carol and family. Merrill was a wonderful teacher. When he retired I was appointed to his position and knew he had been a great role model.

From the members of the Westbrook Fishing Club, North Stonington, CT, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the family.

Carol and Merrilee,

Sorry to hear of the passing of Merrill. I will always remember him for the times we spent fishing together and discussing how lucky we were to be able to enjoy our lives.

Please except our condolences.

Carol & Merrilee,

I was so sad to hear the news of Merrill's passing. Merrill was a big part of my life. He taught me to fish, Hunt, Ski, and block. Not to mention, he was a "great" History teacher and coach. I have fond memories of my youth with you all and of course "Stormy". Most of all, he was a positive force in everyone's lives he touched. I guess like so much in life, we lose touch with people we're really are fond of. Every time I pick up a fly rod,...
