Not sure what to say?

To the Gartley Family & Friends,
I'm one of Mr. Gartley's "kids." Yes, I picked one or two of the potatoes in his fields, in between daydreams and snacks. I always felt safe with him. LOVED the big tire swing in his barn. After working in the fields with him, I always looked forward to seeing him at the performances of our plays at Presque Isle High School. He and Polly made me feel like a famous movie star. (I still enjoy being around a theatre and writing drama.) I am...

Uncle Myron, The Toy Man,
I've never seen anyone wave to so many people while driving. He was a friend to everyone. I was so lucky to have him and Aunt Polly in my life. Love and prayers.
I will miss the balloons, the stories, the "Polly Rocks", the peanut butter with chocolate cookies, and especially him.

My deepest sympathy to the family, I have know Myron for most of my 43 year scouting career and hold him in the highest regard of scouting and service to our youth. I also have known him for several years as a United Methodist member. Myron will be missed, especialy his kind words and firm handshake. God Speed Myron. Boy Scout Troop 177 Washburn

So sorry to hear of Myrons passing. He and Polly were great neighbors when we lived on the Houlton Road. He will surely be missed

Very sorry for your loss. I will always remember how Myron helped guide me to Eagle Scout. May God bless you all.

On behalf of the Phi Eta Kappa fraternity Alumni Board & Brotherhood, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with Myron's family and friends this sad day.

I am so sorry to hear of your/our loss. I have known both Polly and Myron for almost all of my life. I remember getting up in the wee hours and getting ready for them to pick me up to pick potatoes at the farm. I was just in the 5th grade when I started for them. I worked all through school during harvest for Myron and Polly. I can't say that I have ever met finer people anywhere I've traveled, (and that has been pretty extensively). I wish I could be home for the celebration. Our thoughts...

Sue and the Gartley family: So sorry to hear of the death of your dad. I know you have many memories of him to cherish. The memories help deal with the loss of our loved ones. Again, my deepest sympathy.

To the Gartley Family:

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May you draw comfort and strength from God's Word as it is God who promises to be with us during our times of distress. With your father being a Sunday School teacher, no doubt he taught you to have faith in the meaning of the Lord's prayer. Under that Kingdom arrangement for which we pray, life will be restored on a peaceful, righteous earth. Both your parents are now in God's memory with...
