My jolly, happy, always smiling cousin Myra will be missed by our family. Her beautiful voice will be remembered. She sang the Lord's Prayer at so many of our family funerals. We were blessed to have you in our family, sweet lady in purple!

Ms. Epting always made my heart happy, even in middle school when most girls are miserable!! She was an encourager...even recently she messaged me to do that once again. She will be missed, but she left a long legacy of music loving children to continue to carry on singing the song for her!

I was in the Swansea First Baptist Church Choir when Myra came as our choir director and to work with the youth. I throughly enjoyed having the opportunity to work with her. She always made each of us FEEL the message we presented in song. Her caring and loving spirit touched many. I am sure she is singing in Heaven now. My prayers are with you. Joye Hoffman
