  • I was so sorry to hear about Myrl’s passing and especially sad to know that I would not in town to celebrate her life with you. Myrl has been a great neighbor for many years of my life and a super neighbor for my parents for many more. Myrl & Tony were there for our family when my Mom passed away and then again when my Dad was ill and passed away. They checked up on my Sister and I pretty regularly and helped out a lot during those rough times for us. When I was young, Mom & Myrl would regularly get together for a chat or a 19 cent hamburger or to share a laugh over their favorite soda. Those times seemed much more simple than times are these days. I send my sorrow for your loss and I am reminded of something I heard when my Dad passed away and it seems timely now. It goes something like this,.You have been taught well by someone who loves you and wants the best for you. Now it is your turn to teach someone else those valuable lessons.
    May you find peace & comfort in the love of the Savior during this difficult time.
