Gerry Merz was born the 1st of April in 1948. Throughout his life he has been a devoted, caring and amazing father, son, husband, brother, uncle and friend. His work as a social worker has changed the lives of many. Nothing can compare to the kindness this man spreads to everyone. On the 5th of November of this year he checked into urgent care with severe back pain and leg weakness. He was transported to Swedish hospital where he underwent spinal surgery to remove a mass and a vertebrae from his spine. After the surgery he was diagnosed with enlarged B cell lymphoma. He has already shown recovery from the surgery and has begun chemotherapy. He shows the strength he has daily. Again we are always so very thankful for everyone's support. We couldn't do it with out you ❤️
