  3. To the Hedrick family. I’d like to share a wonderful memory about one of the loveliest ladies I have ever known. I had her in Sunday school at First Baptist Church many years ago. We were all suppose to tell something special about ourselves. When it came to my turn, I said I had no special talent, and Merry said, ” Janice, when you come into the room you just light up the room !” She made me feel good in a way that only Merry could. Everyone was blessed to have her this long.


  4. Ron- I wasn’t fortunate enough to know your mom but from the legacy she left behind, I know she was a loving and faithfilled mother. May your fond memories always remain with you all and be at peace knowing your time with her was that of a good son and family.

  5. To Kay and all the family. I am sure this is a hard time for all of you, but how lucky you were to have her for all these years. Your mother was a wonderful lady in every way. I am so grateful that she was a part of my life while growing up in First Baptist Church. May your faith care you as you go through this time. She will always be remembered.

  6. To Chuck, Ron, Ken, and Kay, we offer our condolences to all of you and the extended family as well. Your mom was such a sweet lady, always smiling and asking Rich about his golf game. She had such a long life, mostly with your dad at her side. I’m sure she felt grateful for having such caring kids. Please know we are thinking of you all, and wishing you peace for her life well lived.
