About Merrit Herring

I only met Merrit a few times, but each time was special. He was superb singer, I always loved his choice of songs, but what most came through was his very caring attitude to all people. When he talked with you, you KNEW that you were the only important person in the world at that time. He is much missed these days. More information about Merrit is available here.
