Nancy, Aleta and family:

So sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was such a great guy and he loved a joke and we always had a hug for each other. You will certainly miss him, but I’m sure he is happier now as he will be with his wife, Dorothy, whom he missed so much.

Condolence from Philip & Rosalie Croft on April 6th, 2010 6:48 am

Dear Nancy, Aleta & families,

We were both very saddened to hear that your father had passed away.
We spent many visits listening to his interesting stories and reminiscing about events of the years gone by. He maintained his sharp memory right up to the end.
Jordon and Dorothy were great neighbors over our years in Mersey Point and well respected members of the community. They both are sadly missed by those who knew them.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
May the peace of Christ be with you all.


Philip & Rosalie
Pamela, Heather, Catherine & families

Condolence from Donald and Diane White on April 6th, 2010 5:28 pm

So sorry to hear of Jordan’s passing, he was quite a man. They were both lovely people and always kind to us and our children, who I am sure were at their door at least once a week collecting for something. They usually were invited in for a chat and the kids loved that. Nice people who will be missed by us all but who are now together again.
Thinking of you all,
Donald and Diane and family

Condolence from Barb and Borden Dorey on April 10th, 2010 1:55 pm

Our deepest sympathy to all relatives of Jordan Myra. Here are some memories of Jordan. He was a kind neighbor, he was always around for a yarn in one yard or another depending on the projects going on over the decades in Moose Harbour. I loved listening to his stories and wish I had recorded a few. Our fondest memories are of Jordan inviting us in for a chat … one day he started dog-sitting for our Liebe. Liebe and Jordan got along famously… this continued for years until Liebe got jealous of the new pup in town Humphrey, Borden remembers Jordan introducing himself and deciding for himself if he was going to be friends with Borden. Naturally they got along great. Borden always said “Jordan is my oldest living friend” and “they don’t make em like him anymore” When Borden first moved into the neighborhood… he was shamed into buying his first lawn mower when he found Jordan in his 80’s at the time mowing Borden’s lawn. Jordan gave us good marital advice. We used to have a few drinks with him… but stopped doing that when Jordan’s stomach couldn’t tolerate alcohol. Last but not least, pieces of Jordan are all around… he loved to garden and he shared his secrets and his seeds and even his yard flowers and shrubs… We have a beautiful rhodidendrum he gave and some daffodils. He will be missed. I always bragged about Jordan staying so phsyically fit… his secret was that a physiotherapist gave him some exercises that he did daily and if there is a copy of the exercises anywhere I’d love to have them but I think he committed them to his memory. Oh and I remember the sweet little Christmas trees that Troy would gear up for him… you took great care of you grandpa Troy. Jordan>RIP
