In Loving Memory Of Our Mother, Our Best Friend RACHEL W. MERRILL Oct. 15, 1924 – Aug. 2, 2004 Just a year ago, God took you home and took away your pain and all your worries. There isn’t a day that goes by that you aren’t in our thoughts and prayers. We miss and love you. Lovingly, your daughters, Sheila, Louise, Carolyn and all of your family.
