My regards to the Richards’ family. Myrna was my Brownie troop leader in the early 70’s. Myrna always had the best smile and addictive laugh for every member. She took the time to plan engaging activities and adventurous field trips. Our troop was always on the move.
I had the opportunity to see Myrna last year, found myself gravitating towards her once again. Thank you Myrna for having such an positive impact on a young girl
Rest In Peace my friend,
