    My deepest sympathies to the family at this difficult time. Merry was deeply loved by so many people, due to the kindness in her heart. She always made me (and so many others) feel we were family. She was with me every minute through one of my most difficult times imaginable…I love you, Merry. May you rest in peace.

    My condolences to the entire Atinsky family. She was a doll. Most memorable to me, she cooked for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah party and was so excited when we gave her a t shirt!! I will always remember Merry well…
