Dear Ones: I worked with your mom in critical care at the hospital. We were good friends and I loved her dearly. She did my stress tests. She was not just a wonderful nurse, she was a wonderful woman and friend. I learned a lot from her. I was just sick to my stomach when I read her obituary. It’s a horrible time of year to lose someone. I’m so sorry for her whole family. I know how much she loved her children. You have my deepest sympathy. Sincerely, Sheryl Courtney Warren.
I met Mrs. Merrill two years ago on a family vacation in North Carolina. She very quickly became Grandma Tim and considered me one of her own. She was such a bright soul that could illuminate any room she was in. She shared so many heartfelt stories, and just filled my soul with so much happiness and love. Despite our time spent as friends she left an impact on my life that I will forever cherish. Sending all my love and prayers to the family during this tough time.
Joe & I would like to give our DEEPEST SYMPATHIES to the complete family of Tim’s. We remember her well when we lived out on Hilltop Road. What a beautiful lady with a very sweet personality. May the beautiful memories that you shared with your mom, etc., be etched into your hearts forever. The heavens sure have gained a beautiful Angel today. Our thoughts & prayers are with the family.
Joseph L. & Anna Marie Fry
I worked with Tim for a number of years in icu. She was not only a good nurse, but a beautiful person whom I considered a friend. Even saw her in Ireland one year. What a surprise! My deepest sympathy for her loss. You will miss her everyday,but know she is with Her Lord
I worked with Tim when I first started working at Greenville. She was bright, liked everyone, and was great to work with
Dear family, we worked together for several years and I realize what a loss this is for you. She often talked fondly of her family and loved you all.
Dear family of Tim: I just finished watching the lovely picture tribute that was compiled of her life. The love you put into it’s making shows a measure of how much you miss her already! We worked together for lots of years in Cardiac Rehab and Stress Testing. She was so proud of her kids! May the happy memories that you made together, bring you comfort during this time of grief.
I was sorry to learn of her passing. I worked with her in the hospital. She was a great nurse and a lovely person.
