They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the Morning
We will remember them.– Lawrence Binyon

Neal Mercille

Transfer to Heaven I from Missouri III:

Charter member Neal Mercille lost his courageous battle will leukemia this morning (Jan 5, 2018). Neal transferred to MO III from IL XIII (our mother chapter) when we formed. He was a retired motorman from the Bridgeton Police Department and Vietnam Veteran (USMC). Other than being a motorman; one of his proudest accomplishments was his Police Explore Post. Keep Neal, his wife Mary, his family, colleagues, and many friends in your thoughts and prayers. His quick smile and laugh will be greatly missed.
