This has been such a big loss and has been hard for me to find the words to write. What a truly amazing life he has lived! He has had many gifts, but the most special has been his love and dedication to his family. He was always very loving and I hold that in my heart. I will always miss my Uncle Merlin.

Dear Lois and the Family,

We are saddened to learn that our colleague and friend, Merlin has passed away, and we will miss him dearly. We pray that you are comforted by the fact that he is with the Lord, having achieved earthly accomplishments and heavenly reward in eternity. May your faith in that conviction comfort you and sustain you during these difficult days of your bereavement.

What a wonderful servant of God! From Pastor Steven Hicks
Dr. Rehm was not only my professor, but a mentor, life coach and later in the English District my colleague, circuit counselor and most of all my friend. He watched over me like a shepherd watches his flock. He encouraged me, wouldnt let me quit. I know that all of us will miss him, but we know that he has gone home to the ultimate home.
Blessings Lois.
Well done good and faithful servant.

Ms Lois
I had your husband, Dr Rehm, as a OT prof back in the days of the Senior College and had the pleasure of going to Germany with him back in 1975. Dr Rehm was a honorable prof and a great mentor while in college. Sorry to hear of his passing yet thankful he will be numbered among all the saints.. Blessings to you and your family members

God's peace be with you all! Rev. Dr. Rehm was a professor of mine, who taught me many things but chief among them was a love for Hebrew. He then became my colleague in the same English District circuit. He was such a blessing to me and to many. Without a doubt, he was a humble scholar who knew so much but always treated me as an equal. Rest in peace, dear friend. Rev. Dale Wm. Kaster, Pastor, St. Michael the Archangel Lutheran Church, Prague, Czech Republic
