    Regardless of age, condition, or circumstances, we are never ready to see a loved one pass. It is because we love someone so deeply that it hurts so much. Mert lived a fulfilled life. She loved and was loved by so very many. Her faith, belief, and devotion to church was stronger than anybody I have ever known. I’m pretty sure she had a golden ticket to heaven. No waiting, or evaluating her worthiness. She shot on through the doors of heaven. She was immediately welcomed by those loved ones that beat her there. The love we have for Mert does not leave this Earth with her. She lives on in our hearts as long as she is remembered. And, she will be remembered forever, through her loving family. She was lucky, and we were lucky to have her in our lives.
