MY PARENTS CHOSE THIS NAME BECAUSE: They wanted a unique name that started with the letter "M." Merrik means "ruler of the sea." Bruce is Grandpa John's middle name.

PARENTS' WISH OR ADVICE: Enjoy life and always come to us if you ever need anything. Kael is there for you too!

SOMETHING SPECIAL: The doctor wanted to induce me on April 19 but you wanted no part of that -- you were coming on your own terms. You had to wait for your Uncle Justin to go back to school in Texas.
