Dearest family of Merlene
We are so very sad to hear of Merlene\'s tragic passing. Your mother was a very dear to our family and her kind spirit will always be remembered.
My mother is so sorry she cannot attend the funeral as she is in rehab right now. She will definitely be in touch with you.
With much sympathy.
