Myra, you presented the true gift of a marvelous woman full of spirit and wit. I laugh to this day about when you came out on the stage at CMS dressed in Madonna outfit complete with tassles! So dignified and sure of yourself! Thank you for sharing yourself with us. Much love to your family. Donna Walker

My condolences to Mrs Myra Hollands family.

Ms Myra was a pure jewel and it is sad that she is no more.

I believe and trust she has graduated to a better and peaceful place where God prepared for her.

My family and I will always remember her for what she did for us when we came in the United States of America from Africa.
