To our Peg’s family, may the peace of our Lord be on you all at the “promotion” of your loved one into her eternal home. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 is what you embrace during this temporary separation, knowing that as we each pass from this life, our Living God restores our family on the other side of the veil, where we’ll once again rejoice over the family that God made us as we walked the earth. I’m certain my mom, Mary McCombs, was in Peg’s greeting committee when the angels escorted her into the Realms of Glory. Together forever with our loved ones in the presence of Jesus is something “I Can Only Imagine.” God bless you all, and may our Living God grant you the “peace that passes all understanding.” (In Jesus’ name)

So very sorry for the family’s loss! I only knew of Mrs Merrill through the stories of her daughter-in-law, Laurie. She certainly sounded like a wonderful and fun woman!
