  • I had the pleasure of working with Myra, abt. 20 years ago. I was saddened to read of her passing, but also amazed when I noted her age. The co-worker I often talked with, was spot on and often humorous in her observations about life. Myra’s spirit didn’t leave me with the impression that she was older than my parents ( not that 65 is old)s. She was SO much fun! I can only imagine how delightful Myra was with those who knew her best!

  • It is hard to see that a year has gone by already. I will never forget the countless hours of laughter listening to the stories Aunt Myra told me of her youth and the great times she had with her brothers and sisters. Love you always Aunt Myra
