I am remembering Merwyn from our work place ,at the Brighton Mushroom Farm , Howe, In where he was hired in 1965. He worked back on the Slab for many years & in maintenance & then up to the Harvest Area, where he worked with me in the Basket Room, crates, baskets were washed & then dried. He had a gift of laughter, like no other. i always heard alot of you as family, but never net anyone, of you. He loved IU Basketball ,I took him an IU calendar once & saw & talked with him ,in the Northern Lakes Nursing Home.,several years now past. My Sympathy in His Passing from Earth, to his Eternal Home Above with jesus.
