  1. Hello Mercedes,
    It breaks my heart to write you this way .
    You are such a young heart that has endured many heartbreaks …
    You are in the hands of our Father where nothing can come against you again.
    Come by and visit us all often as you’ve left behind so many broken hearts ….
    I want you to know that you blessed my life from the very first second I knew of your existence….
    I’m going to miss that little girl I watched grow up into the young woman you are .
    My heart breaks that Dallas will never know the amazing person that I did …
    My heart is so sad for your Momma .
    To lose you is more than a Mother’s heart can stand
    Love you to the Heavens and back ….
    Grandma and Poppa Cline

  2. Dear Mercedes,
    I know you’re no longer with us and that breaks my heart. But I will forever hold the time we spent together in my heart. Cherish the words and artworks you left behind. They will live on in the hearts of those who loved you. Although you didn’t get to follow all your dreams, happiness was still achieved. And even though I didn’t get to see you too often I know you’re happy with your family and the life you started. To your family I offer my best wishes and support, you were the light of the universe and shared that light with everyone regardless of their background. You will be remembered honorably and missed dearly. Rest easy friend.🤍

  3. Oh Mercedes….I wish so much I would have had the chance to know you better and to tell you how thankful I was for your kind spirit. You were so kind to Julia when so many were not. Thank you! My heart hurts for your family but I know you will watch over all of them. You are a wonderful example of beauty from the inside out! Rest easy sweetie. You will be so missed.

  4. You left us way too soon beautiful my heart has been hurting since you left. Life isn’t the same without you. We all miss you so much and I still can’t believe you are gone so soon 💔 we miss you beautiful until we meet again

  5. I can’t believe I have to find the words to comprehend that you are gone Mercedes Weirich 💔. My heart and head hurts, from all tears I’ve shed. To actually accept that I’m awake and that this is real. To know your face won’t age another day. I won’t see you or run into you while grocery shopping. How I wanted to have our close friendship again. I feel as if I didn’t try hard enough. I will have to remember you longer than I’ve known you and that hurts the most. From all your dreams to be an veterinarian. To the countless hours you worked to do the best you can. I will never not have a day I won’t miss you. That you always gave me hope, and were an inspiration for me. Know you meant the world to me regardless of how far apart we became. You should know I always thought of you and hoped for you to have an amazing life you deserved. You will always be more of a sister to me, rather than just my cousin. The fact we grew up together and I watched and held you in my arms as a baby. We would spend every moment we could together and would always cry to be apart. Please fly high in the clouds ⛅️ 🙏 be there one day to spend eternity with you in serenity.

    Karen Margaret Elizabeth Baker
