As I watered flowers this week, thoughts of Merry came to mind and how she didn't like flowers. Other memories flooded in. Although life got busy and we didn't visit each other for some time, her loss did not pass without impact. When I think of love, respect, strength, family, Merry comes to mind. No marriage, no parent is perfect, but if there was someone that I could model after it would be Merry. Her humor, her laugh, her reminder that not everyone spells their name "Mary" but like "Merry" Christmas. Her strength and coming to a friends defense when needed. Unwavering family commitment and love. Strength to persevere. Our silly pranks in the office, breaks and lunches. Mary Kay nail parties and just plain hanging out and having fun. I wish life gave us an explanation why someone like Merry is gone to soon when she did so much good on earth but take peace that you are no longer suffering. Heaven gained a special lady. Your memory will continue to leave a positive imprint on my heart. To all family and friends, you are in my prayers.

Boc, and family, Merry was a special person, one who I really got to know when things went less than perfect, but one who "never" forgot the folks who had her back, and you, Casey, Gabe, and their families are the ones who had her front and back! And Merry knew it without a doubt. We will all miss her and remember the fighter she was. I have fond feelings for your family knowing she was given a little more freedom as was my grandfather with that old green van.........
God Bless, Scott

I worked with Merry at the District Court Trustee’s Office in the 1990’s. Merry was a pleasure to work with & helped to brighten the office with her positive attitude & sense of humor. Although I never met any of you, her family, she talked about all of you & it was so obvious that family was so important to her. I am so very sorry for your loss. My sincerest condolences to each one of you. May you find comfort in the many fond memories of her.

Steve, I am very sorry to hear about the death of your wife. I know it is a very painful time and I just wish you the consolation of your faith and comfort of knowing that she is better now than she has been for the last couple of years. My Youngest sister Jerilynn died from ALS 5 years ago. It is the worst disease I have ever heard of. I heard of your loss from Rudy Haun who stays close to Mickey Houghton. I am fond of remembering the good old days when my Dad would stop the gas truck long enough to go into Bouquins station.
Take care of yourself Steve. Wish you the very best old friend of mine.

Oh Boc, Casey, Gabe and family, the world is a little less bright without Merry in it. She was such a ray of sunshine with her sense of humor and orneriness. She is my favorite cousin and I will never forget her delight in scaring the bejesus out of us with Bloody Boots story. I am so grateful for the times I spent with her. Our day at Magnolia Silos was so filled with laughter! My husband Jason fell instantly in love with her and so enjoyed being around her and Boc. I wish we had a hundred more of those days but I know she’s happily in Heaven entertaining everyone with her funny stories.
Y’all are in our prayers and we love all of you. I’m so sorry that Jason and I could not be there today.
Love, Rebecca and Jason

I never had the opportunity to meet grandmabocie, but got to know her a little through our few emails after our two Midland Hospice workers got us connected because we both were in Midland suffering through our end of life with ALS. As i looked at the video i was so to see pictures of her life, because her emails showed a great love for her family she talked about. I am so happy you took trips together and created memories of the good times as i know she was so grateful her illness did not get in the way of seeing you all. We had several things in common related to love of children and care for beyond family in her job. I am only sad she did not get more healthy time after her retirement as i am five years older and had several years of health after my school system 36 years to get more travel in. But I do know what she went through and began to get quite worried when i stopped hearing from her. I send my greatest respect for all of you family members for standing with her through this most awful way of dying, but know all you did, all the trips over to see her and all the love you showed her through the ALS were grateful to her were great acts of love at the time most needed. I send my blessings to the entire family and wish i had had the opportunity to meet her in person. You are all in my thoughts.

Boc & family.
We are blessed to have known Merry. She made all of us want to be better people without even trying. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers, but finding comfort that she is watching over all of us in her own way! God bless!

I remember so well when Merry and I started at DynCorp. The furniture shopping, the breakfast meetings to get the office set up. We really did have some good times! At one of our office gift exchanges, she had gotten my name. She gave me a perpetual calendar that I still use today. I always think of her when I see it and it is more precious to me now. I will always remember Merry's love for her family and her love of laughter. I won't be able to attend her funeral, but the family will be in my prayers. RIP Merry. You are loved and you are missed.

I worked with Merry 4 years,she was a wonderful person. Every morning when Merry would come to work she would change the color of her monitor screen to match her shirt. We miss her every day. Bless you Merry and your wonderful husband and family, May you Rest In Peace, you will always be in my heart. Jennifer Morales

We are so sorry to hear about Merry's passing. She was truly a joy to be around, and definitely loved her jewelry! We will miss her wicked sense of humor and that beautiful smile. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. It was our pleasure to get to know this remarkable lady. Sincerely, Linda, Mary, Erin, Gina, Sydney, Paula, Marcia and Dianne (the girls from The Etc.

Casey and Families - Sorry to read of Merry's passing. Knowing and working with your Father-in-law and Brother-in-law, Larry. My Dad sharing of your Dad's family connections back to the Reading, KS. Watching your girls and our niece on the soccer fields. Our connection at Northland before we moved to Bethany, OK. Please know your families are in our thoughts and prayers.

Oh, Miss Merry! What joy you brought to our lives! I love you to pieces, my friend, and will miss you, knowing you are no longer with us here on this earth. It brings peace to us to know you have your arms around Jesus. I will see you again one day, my friend. Much, much love to you and your family that you loved so very much. You left sunshine on everyone who knew you. May you live on in glorious joy and peace. I love you.

We are so sorry to hear about Merry! We had a lot of good bleacher time watching the boys play baseball when they were young. She was a go-getter! Find comfort in all your wonderful memories as they will keep her in your lives!

So very sorry to hear of your loss. I never got to meet your wife but so enjoyed her posts and could tell just by reading them how much her family meant to her. She always looked happy, loving and kind. It just radiated out. Your family will be in my daily prayers.
~ Cathy Cerretti - July 25, 2019
Sending thoughts and prayers. I was blessed to work beside Merry for a few years. She would jokingly tell us that she was going to get married on her lunch every day. Of course she stuck with the same groom Boc!! She matched the color of her computer monitors to her outfit daily. She was bold, ornery, and hilarious. I would tell her I wanted to be like her when I grew up. Merry will be missed
~ Kristi Price - July 25, 2019
Merry will always be one of my all-time favorite people that I have had the sincere pleasure of knowing in my life. I met Merry as a fresh-faced 19-year old working his first professional job when she was my supervisor at Dyntek/YoungWilliams. I can't think of many people who could make me, and everybody else, laugh so hard. She was so mischievous. She had a way of saying something hilarious at the perfect opportunity and her contagious laughter would just carry the moment. She was also my shoulder to cry on when my father passed away when I was 21, and I'll never, ever forget her during those tough moments. When I think back to those times and I think of my dad, I always think of Merry too. She was always there for me to make me smile or give me advice. She made me want to be better and work harder, and she just knew how to enjoy life and help others around her enjoy it too. I have missed her terribly, and was so sad to hear she was battling ALS, but she fought bravely and has so much to show for her great life. My sincerest condolences to her family.
~ Matt Wissman - July 25, 2019
You battled ALS with humor, courage and dignity. Anyone who ever knew you were aware that family was the most important aspect of your life. Your grandsons and our granddaughters have so many memories to hold in their hearts because of your devotion to them. I will miss having you to share old Oakland memories with. Our lives were richer for knowing you. Until we meet again.....
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Rest In Peace Merry, you will be missed.

We’ve known Merry, Boc, and family for many years. Lost track the last few. So sorry for the families loss but so happy she knows her Savior. But remember- we’ve ‘lost’ nothing because we know exactly where she can be found - and we will ‘find’ her again! We will all meet again - no sorrow or pain. We look forward to it!

Steve and family,
My condolences for your loss.
Only met Merry a few times at Jostens events, what a wonderful lady, so kind, loving, and generous.
I worked with Steve many years at Jostens, I worked in Camera.
Prayers for family.

Casey and family, may the fond memories of your mother/grandmother get you through this difficult time. I’m very sorry to hear about your loss. Hugs

I remember my first day walking into the District Court Trustees Office on my first day at work as a Legal Secretary and met this beautiful woman, who I thought was a Manager at the time. She carried herself with confidence and had a big Grin on her face with those blue eyes, her finger nails and toe nails matched perfectly and she had rings, bracelets and a necklace on that matched her outfit.... She came up to me and said welcome aboard! She told me later that she was thinking....Who does this chick think she is with a briefcase... ?????? I never lived that one down. That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship that would last nearly 29 years. I recall Merrys story about Gabe getting upset about his first paycheck and wanted to know "Who this FICA guy was." When she would talk about Casey and Gabe growing up she would always get a twinkle in her eyes. She adored her grandchildren and always found some way to make memories with them and set traditions. Merry I love you and will miss you dearly my friend. ?????
~ Shanna Burgardt - July 24, 2019
Loved seeing Merry's smile & laughter at the softball diamonds & around at all the grandchildren sporting events. She was always giving me a hard time when I was trying to do my job LoL! Will miss her smiling face. Prayers to all the family.
