To the entire Mersch family, I knew your mom and dad through the retiree's club. They were always a delight and we missed them so very much. Your mother is with your father I am certain. She will be able to return to her bubbly personality with him. May God rest her soul and strengthen yours.

I am so sorry for your loss. Many of day and night I had the opportunity to see your mom at ice rinks all across Chicagoland and it was always a pleasure. Peace be with you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Thinking of the whole Mersch family. Your mom was a remarkable woman and I loved her. Your house was my second home growing up. Your parents have left a wonderful legacy of kind, thoughtful children. I am so honored to have had your mom in my life, especially my childhood.
