RichardM's Memorial Service
« on: July 11, 2019, 05:10:23 PM »
Richard Merrill's memorial service will be held at Clear Lake United Methodist Church on Saturday, July 27 at 2 p.m.  The church is located at 16335 El Camino Real, Houston, TX 77062.  It's between El Dorado and Bay Area Blvd.  And an FYI, the parking lot is behind the church but the sanctuary is closest to El Camino Real.

In lieu of flowers, donations for Jennifer's college fund can be made via the GoFundMe page started by his friends here at Big Bend Chat:

.  Donations may also be made to the CLUMC Music Fund.

Richard's brother said that they welcome any and all sentiments via .  We have also discussed putting together a scrapbook of sentiments for Jennifer, including photos that you would like to share.  To be included in the scrapbook, please post her on the forum and/or send to me at

Six years between trips - way too long.

Well done, Maggie. Still heartbroken about Richard, but gratified to read your news of so many tributes and memorials to Richard. Thanks for the update.
