To all in Merle’s world,
This is the post I dreaded having to make. The one I envisioned to say Merle, after valiant efforts, “lost” her battle with……….. But after time, unencumbered by daily issues, as we spent our last days physically together isolated at this marvelous hospice,
I was once again the husband, not the caregiver. The one that chose this amazing woman to be my life partner.
The care was directed by the very professional, very kind staff who eased Merle, not to the end of losing battle but, to her reward of a life so well lived. Late Saturday night my love peacefully slipped over to the other side. I am not destroyed because I comfort in knowing she is looking over us and we are never alone. I am saddened because my best friend isn’t there to discuss, deliberate, and caution me that I am talking too much!! My teammate, my coach, my superstar, earned her rest, her reward, her legacy, as the mortar that holds us all together.
Please join us if you can to celebrate her life by putting her to rest on Tuesday 9/19/23 at
New Montifiore Cemetery 1180 Wellwood Ave
West Babylon, NY 11704 for a 1:00PM (arrive at 12:30) Graveside service

My heart and prayers are with all of Merle’s loved ones. Know that she was an Angel on earth and now your guardian Angel. Merle and I met over 20 years ago through work, over the phone. She touched my heart from the first words she spoke. I knew she was kind,caring and compassiate person. Our friendship grew over the years and I will always thank God that our paths in life crossed. Her family was her whole world, even her puppy! She was so proud of each one of you.
A person like Merle could never be forgotten! She was beautiful inside and out.
The last few years we may have been distant but she was & will always be in my heart!
As time passes may the memories of her warm your hearts and put a smile upon your face. I know my memories of her will always put a smile upon my face! God Bless all of you.
