    Living on Cambie Road, I started babysitting Mearl when she was one year old. Her stepfather, Ivan, was one of my best friends, so I got to see her grow up and become a typical normal teenager and then become a wonderful woman, who was always pleasant and respectful of others. My condolences to Jason and the children as well as my friends Vickie and Joe. I share in your loss.

    We are so very sad to hear of the passing of Mearl. Our home was her home, separated only by the park. Such a special person who has been taken way to soon. Hugs, hugs and more hugs for the family.

    I will always remember the great times we had growing up from Belgo through to Rutland Senior, and the many run-ins we had until you moved. My thoughts are with your beautiful family. Mearl had a wonderful soul which now will live through her children.

    Mearl touched the hearts and lives of everyone she met and left us all better for knowing her. She made English class a lot more fun. My deepest sympathies to Mearl's family.

    Saddened and so sorry for Mearl's family. Hard to believe it's been more than a quarter of a century since we met in Hollywood's hallowed halls.
