A Kind Heart

Merice was the Executive Director during my time at the St.L.Y.A. She was very down to earth and approachable. She had a kind heart and was very much down to earth. She will undoubtedly be missed by all that knew the difference she made in the lives of troubled youth.
A great love

I met Merice many years ago while working at a restaurant(Red Lobster) close to her home. Over the years we have had some wonderful talks and great laughs. She was truly a lovely classy lady. My thoughts are with your family. Linda Murphy
A good friend

I spent five years from 1974 to 1979 working with Merice in often trying circumstances. She believed in me, allowed me space and supported me. I will always be grateful for that. Life is a learning experience and Merice was constantly learning and growing -- she has a special place in my memories.
