So sorry for your loss. I only got to know Merv recently and without a doubt I know he was a great guy. I will always remember him in his red convertible.

Dear Dammerman Family,
I wish to take this belated opportunity to convey the condolences and sympathies of my family and me for your loss of Mr. Dammerman. I regret to say that I don't
remember him in this late stage of my life. However, I am sure that I knew him when I was growing up in Nokomis. I remember where you folks lived on the farm just east of Nokomis, and north of the railroad tracks. I remember Bonnie as we went to high school together (two years behind me), and Lolita was not yet in high school when I graduated in 1956. Anyway, while you may grieve in your husband's/father' loss, may you rejoice in the fulfillment of his life, and the many joys he brought to you as a parent. May he rest in eternal peace.
Semper fidelis,

John K. Williams
