Dear Family and Friends of Effingham,
We have always known we live in a great county but the citizens of this community truly outdid themselves during our recent loss. The outpouring of love toward our family has been beyond amazing. So many of you attended the visitation for Merrill. There were so many cards, so much food, calls unlimited and boundless love.
Merrill truly, unconditionally loved people no matter what walk of life they came from. He strived to help all in his path that needed assistance. He would be so proud to know that it is because of your generosity of donations in his memory that his daughter and her family of six will have the honor/privilege of being a part of a mission trip to Tennessee in the very near future to share the love of Jesus.
It is with much gratitude that we say "thank you" to all of you ....
The Merrill Riggs Family
