It's sad that I've gotten to know you after grandma's death last year. Photos of you on your 55 Harley Davidson police bike. I remember great grandma Opal telling us little ones (in 1962)" Merle would have loved to see you kids grow, he loved his family so very much". I hope to god, when my time comes, that it's Merle who is on the other side to guide me . ....I only hope I've been worthy enough. Please if anyone could help I'd like to know more about the man.
