Message from Merl Saunders' family

Merl Saunders - (2.14.34 - 10.24.08)- for the Grateful Web

Merl Saunders stood for music and love – his smile alone told you that.  We loved him very much – and we know that you, his fans, did too.  Sad as we are to lose him, we're very aware of being comforted by the affection coming from all those touched by that smile and that wonderful music.  He was a special man, a beautiful companion, father, grandfather, and family patriarch, and the proof of that spirit is in the way you've reached out to us at his passing.  From our hearts, thank you.  And we know Merl thanks you too.   

Keep on keepin' on, The Saunders Family

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, October 29th, at 11 am at First AME Zion Church, 2159 Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco.  

In lieu of flowers, we request that donations be made to either the Rainforest Action Network or the Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic.
