To the Merzlock family:Aunt Leona was a gem to me my whole life, and to my father, she was so much more than a sister-in-law. She will be more than missed, it feels like a piece of my heart has been removed. To you all, you have been so strong through this last 6 months, and my prayers will be constantly with you, Mark and Paul. A day at a time...and remember she is not really gone, but is with you every moment. Listen, I believe she is speaking to you.
