Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I met Merv quite a few years ago when he came to our home to fix our furnace. After learning that I was a Holistic Healer and a Certified Counsellor, he set up an appointment with me. His Spirit needed healing, I was grateful that he chose me to be part of his Journey. We met on many occasions, ( and I knew he was hurting due to the loss of his daughter). I suggested he start Drumming, (as I had participated in drumming circles myself). Merv was excited and flew to Sedona to learn how to drum and returned to Brandon and started Drumming Circles ( which were amazing) and very therapeutic for his followers. He made me a drum, which I cherish daily, and gifted me a beautiful scarf from Sedona! I trust Mervyn is now with his daughter and will continue his growth in Spirit.. NAMASTE MERV! It was an honour knowing you. Colette Scott (A.C.C.P.), Holistic Healer and Life Coach Brandon, Manitoba - Posted by: Colette Scott ( Spiritual Healer) (Client ) on: Jun 12, 2022
