  1. Deepest Condolences prayers for the family love uncle Bruce and aunt Vivi and Kirstie and Khloe

  2. I’m so so sorry for your loss. I pray God will grant you peace and comfort Mikie looks like a kind young man

  3. Hey, to the Merritt family…
    My thoughts and prayers to all of you. LSU would go one to win the National Championship, Auburn was 2nd. As for that jerk who killed Mikey? Bama finished 3rd! The 3 people who received the gift of life are now LSU/Auburn fans now because of Mikey. It Just Means More…to stop fan violence. God bless.
