    I guess I don't know how to spell my own name. I couldn't go back and fix it.

    I loved Aunt Merle. I know sometimes our lives are so busy and we don't seem to have extra time other than just functioning in our own realm, BUT always remember....there is nothing better than the love of family. Family sticks together through thick and thin. The Mendheims know how to do that. I don't really understand what you all are feeling but my time with my own Mother is not too far away. Just know that I love the four of you and more importantly, God loves you. He can give you the peace and comfort that you need. In I Peter 5:10, God promises us that all His children are assured of an eternal life with Christ where there will be no suffering. Oh, what an awsome promise and gift. I will be praying for each of you. Love, Ce

    Please know that you have our deepest sympathy. We love Aunt Merle and have good memories of her. When she became a nurse we were very impressed with her accomplishment. Shortly after that she generously gave us her nursing text books which we still use to this day. She was always very good and kind to us. We also have special memories of her enthusiasm for gardening and her enjoyment of the orchid plants that we shared with her. We pray that our heavenly Father bless and comfort you at this time. Love, Kenneth & Diana

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Our Mendheim ancestors are quickly passing. Aunt Merle was always so sweet. I remember all the good times we shared while growing up. Angela and I thought we were grown when we were with you girls. May God bless you!
    Cheryl & family
