    I always admired Merrill's incredible zest for life. I was saddened to read of his passing in the paper. Merrill had may talents especially entertaining a whole busload of stranges. My sympathy goes out to the family.

    I am Nate Rinfret's grandmother in NH. Todd came to tell us of Merrill's passing. We are both so sorry for your loss. I called Nate in Colorado to tell him about his grandfather. My husband said, he met you when you and Merrill were shopping at Arjay's Hardware store in Exeter. Once again we are so sorry for your loss. Mr. & Mrs. Richard A.
