Dear Rhoda,

Tom and I were so sorry to learn of Derek's passing. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you, Meigra and Robin during this very sad time.

Dear Mrs. Meyers,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your husband. I have such wonderful memories of him in our travels across Europe when we were studying in Switzerland. He had an adventurous spirit and easy going nature that made him a great leader of our troupe. He was an excellent professor and his love of art spilled onto us all. Most of the artists and artwork I can discuss are because of his teachings. My heart goes out to you and your family during this time. ...

Dear Rhoda, Jane, Meg, and Robin,
Our deepest sympathies go to you in the days and months ahead as you grieve the loss of your husband, brother, and father. He was my cousin, and I looked up to him. As a young child, I admired him. When the Myers family would come to our house for Christmas, I especially remember Derek with great fondness.

He was compassionate, had a heart of gold, and I wish I could have known him better as an adult, but we lived so far apart. I know I...

The Myers Family,

It was my honor to have known Derek and it was always a pleasure being around him. When I was still in the Roanoke Valley, I sat in on the Payday Lending Taskforce that Derek was a part of. Derek was committed to challenging injustice and the exploitation of the least among us. Our loss is heaven's gain. May Derek's memory inspire us all,

Dear Aunt Rhoda, Meg, and Rob,

I just found about about your terrible loss from my mother. Our family's prayers and thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. Our uncle will be missed.

Love to you all,

I was deeply saddened to learn of Prof. Myers' passing. He was a kind man who was passionate about teaching and helping young people. Personally, I will always credit him for instilling the deep appreciation for renaissance and impressionist art that I have today. I know that my time spent in Europe, and especially Italy, would not have been nearly as rewarding both educationally and culturally had it not been for the lessons of Prof. Myers. I will always remember him fondly when I think...

Dear Rhoda, Jane, Meg & Rob,
I was very saddened to hear of Derek's passing. I remember way back when, and the Myers Troup would show up in El Paso, the house full, lots of cooking, Jane rubbing her mother's feet, and sitting on Derek's lap, thinking, "Wow, he's tall." I've read the many tributes and, yes, he was a very fine man indeed. My heart felt sympathies to you all on such a tremendous loss.
With much love, Kitty Malcom

Rhoda,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers are for you and your family.

Dear Rhoda,
I'm so sorry to hear of Derek's passing. I remember him well from our time working together in Riva 11 years ago. And even though we haven't kept up since I moved to Vienna, Austria in 2000, Derek left a deep impression on me. He was kind, generous, open, and caring. I give you my deepest sympathy in dealing with this terrible loss.
