My cousin, Merry, never stopped smiling. She was the kindest person you would ever meet and she loved giving hugs so much that my son's all called her Merry Hugs-A-Lot. Our loss is heaven's gain and I can see her now never wanting to leave Jesus' side, giving him hugs and kisses throughout eternity. You have left a hole in the world, sweet Merry, and you will be missed. My heart goes out to Charlie, Merri Elizabeth, Charles, Allen, Danny and Jimmy whose hearts feel the biggest loss. May your wonderful memories give you comfort and joy until you meet again. ~~ Love to all, Peggy
