    We are Richard & Nancy Merrill from St. Gertrude Parish in Chicago. We are related to the Peter Brost family from St. Gertrude’s Parish since 1910. Mildred Brost Merrill was a first cousin to Isabelle, Eleanor, Gertrude and Mathius Brost from St. Benedict’s Parish. Our prayers are with all the Mathias Brost family at his time.
