Larry and family, my thoughts are with you. I'm so sad to hear of Myrna's passing. The two of you were such positive influences on me in my youth in Americus, and I have wonderful memories of you and Myrna. I wish you peace and comfort.

If we were outside taking our Junaluska walks, we knew when we saw Larry and Myrna coming it would be a wonderful little visit. And that it was, always! We are thankful for those times together with part of our Junaluska family. So when we heard that Myrna had the accident Sunday, we were very sad. You are in our prayers, Larry, as you face this pain without your precious Myrna. We are thankful for your loving children.

Larry, I was saddened to learn of Myrna's passing. How thankful I am that Ben called me so soon. The Lord gave a wonderful gift when he gave us all Myrna. My memories with the two of you are vivid as if they happened only a moment ago. I especially remember Christmas dinners at your home. Myrna was always so gracious and made your home alive and warm. How thankful I am for the time we shared all those years ago. You and the family have been and are in my prayers. I will see you all in Columbus. Until then I sent my love and prayers to surround you. I love you, Larry, and thank the Lord for your powerful witness.

Dearest Bro. Larry,
I have the fondest memories of visiting in your home while you were in Blakely. Mrs. Myrna was always a generous and kind hostess. I always enjoyed spending time with your family., because your home was always filled with love and laughter. As you well know, you had a tremendous impact on my spiritual growth, and I always think of you with the deepest love and appreciation. I am sorry for your loss. Your marriage was a witness to us all, and Mrs. Myrna will be greatly missed. Heaven gained an angel.

Much love,
Candi Everson Vickers
