One of the greatest families in Southboro led by Ed with Marilyn by his side. I, like many others had the privilege to be around them as kids through today and learn so much about life, fun and family. Memories are ingrained from the many conversations and time with this incredible man. There are no words to express gratitude for my time with you. Thank you for being a big part of my life. Love and thoughts to the Meserve family on this day.

My father, the late Dr James G Boyd, practiced with Dr Meserve for many years in Marlboro. My father thought the world of Dr Meserve. I heard his name 10,000 times as I was growing up. Every word was praise.
He and his family should be very proud of his long and distinguished career during which he served so many with the great skills that God gave him.
May he rest in peace.

Marilyn and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Although your loss is great you have so many memories of the Husband and Father. Being a new comer to town the one thing I remember the most is his stories. They were so interesting and told with such feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you in this sad time.
