Mr. Edsel, Debbie and Family, Sweet, sweet Ms. Addie Merle......always looked after us. It seems like it has been such a long time since we were able to go visit with she and Mr. Edsel and sit down and talk. We always enjoyed listening to her recap the days of old. Please know that we loved her so, so much and we are praying for strength and comfort for all of you. She was a homecoming queen here on earth and now she is a queen in Heaven. How awesome is that!

Love and prayers. Sarah and Mike Vickers

I will look forward to that day when I get to heaven and be in the presence of Jesus and all of those awesome saints that I have grown to know and love in my life--Mrs. Addie Merle being one of them.

To the family of Mrs. Jones, God bless and my prayers are with you.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Addie Merle. What a beautiful woman of faith she was. I have so many fond memories of her and her teaching us at church and also those beautiful songs we all enjoyed with her and Edsel and uncle Jimmy. She was a mentor to us and not only taught us about living a Christian life she also modeled it before us. Many prayers for you all during this time.
