Default Merge Multiple Records from Excel into Word Mail Merge

Is this possible?

I have an Excel spreadsheet that has all the employees at a certain
store. Each employee is listed in an individual row in the
spreadsheet, and they all have the same eMail address, such as
.

I want to create a eMail merge from Word that automatically is
addressed to
(which I know how to do), but I
want the eMail to have all the names of the employees at the store
listed in the body of the eMail, such as would be shown below:

Dear


Your store employees a
John Smith
Jane Doe
Susan Jones
Sam Walsh
Steven Raymond

Right now, I can figure out how to send off the 5 individual eMails,
but I want to have all the employees on a single eMail so I don't
