WATERVILLE -- Natalie Grace Merriam went to be one of God's angels on Dec. 25, 2012. She left this world too early, at the age of 2 months.
Natalie was the most beautiful and happy baby. She was born on Oct. 20, 2012, in Waterville. She is the only daughter of Joshua Merriam and Amy Marmanik, and the day she was born was the happiest and most blessed day of both of their lives.
She completed them by changing their lives forever. Natalie saved them and was the greatest blessing to the two of them and their families. She is and will always be their beautiful angel. Natalie is so loved by all, especially by her mommy and daddy. Natalie will be very sadly missed and never forgotten.
She is survived by her loving parents, Joshua and Amy; her maternal grandparents, Joanne Marmanik and Frank Marmanik; paternal grandparents, Shelby Merriam and Robert Merriam; her auntie and godmother, Gina Mermanik, who loved her so much; her uncle, Frankie Mermanik; maternal great-grandmothers, Louise Ruthford and Ruth Nicastro; paternal great-grandparents, Irene and Ted Lint and Gwen and Bob Thompson.
"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must always remember; you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we're apart, I'll always be with you."
A celebration of Natalie's life will be at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012, at Veilleux Funeral Home.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Veilleux Funeral Home, 8 Elm St., Waterville, www.veilleuxfuneralhome.com.
