There aren't enough words to describe the wonderful human being who was Merv Hurwitz. From the moment we met him & Rahle in 2006 and asked where they were from, and he replied (with his S.

We hope that all the great memories and unending stories will help ease your pain. Our hearts go out to Rahle and their beautiful family. Fran Swirsky and Elliott Utrecht
