TO MY NEW VISION FAMILY,
My heartfelt appreciation goes out to everyone for their: calls, messages, thoughts and prayers at the loss of my father Rev. Johnny Merritt. Your support and kindness has been a blessing to me and my family, and will remain forever in our hearts. My family and I would be honored to have you join us for the celebration of life of a father, grandfather, friend and pastor to many. The Homegoing will be on Friday, December 30th at 11 am. The family will receive visitors at 10 am. The service will be held at McKinley United Methodist Church, 196 Hawthorn St., Dayton, OH 45402. There will be a combined choir and combined Ushers for this service. The churches invited to participate in this service are: McKinley UMC, Trinity Presbyterian, New Vision UMC, and Calvary UMC. We would like to make the New Vision van available to carry those in need of transportation. Please see Ramon and Marchelle Tubbs.
Yours in Christ,
