Nancy and I are sorry to learn of Myra’s passing. We always enjoyed chatting with her.
Sheila and family,
I was saddened to read of your mother’s passing. I have very fond memories of coming out to the house with Victor after school and of the times we all spent at KOA campground. I recall a few years ago, seeing you and your mom at the Superstore and having a great chat with her. That was a really nice day! Losing a parent is a very difficult time and I send my sincere condolences.

Sheila and Family…we are so sorry for your loss…we got to know Myra quite well at Queens Manor as our father was in the same Unit with her…we always enjoyed her stories and she had a place in her heart for children because when we would take our granddaughter to visit her Great Grampy Myra would love to visit and chat with her…and it’s very ironic that they both passed with minutes of each other…may you find peace in knowing she is in a better place and free from pain…R.I.P. Myra…spread your Wings and Fly High with the Angels…
