To all the Merritts... children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Don, and Joan, were two of my finest friends. Some of y'all know how much time I spent with them, and how I enjoyed just about every minute of it. They were almost like an uncle and an auntie that I never knew I had. Another great friend of mine, Ted Jones, introduced me to them when I was pretty young, and that was a long time ago. I learned so much from them... I think they might have learned a little bit from me too. I will miss them... I hope that everyone is well. My heartfelt condolences... Take care of each other, and please stay safe... Respectfully, Slim ( Allen Wemple )

Wayne and other children, Don was a faithful driver for Meals-on-Wheels many, many years. He would drive his day weekly and substitute another day if needed. I was recruiting drivers 2002- 2006 but I am sure he gave more years than me. He entered the kitchen with a smile on his face and shared positives words. A very good man, Fran Billingsley
