Isaac Marcos Merrill1983-2011Isaac Marcos Merrill, beloved son of The Reverend Jerry and Carole Merrill, died in his sleep 16th of December. Born 8th of September 1983, his dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and Autism did not deter his love of parents and extended family and friends. Nothing delighted him more than to be with them at the table in home settings. He was also a genius at the communion rail partaking of the bread and wine as one knowing the sacramental life included him.His last Sunday in church was observed by attending "Lessons and Carols", during which he exchanged a gaze with his mother that could aptly be called "Beatific". He had that rare quality of relating to people, the church, and life's beauties with spontaneous joy and wonder; a knowing free of intellectual limitations was his particular giftthus, he taught in his own , inimitable way love's varied and merciful lessons. A celebration and thanksgiving for Isaac Marc's life will be held at 10:30 am 20th of December at the Cathedral Church of Saint Mark 231 East 100 South. Directors Neil O'Donnell and Sons. In lieu of flowers please send contributions to the Guadalupe Educational Programs in his name. Special thanks to the pioneers of the community based on, small group homes (You know who you are!).
