Myron, may your life in heaven, thus far, be more beautiful than words could ever express. Praise be to God for taking you to HIS heavenly realms to experience his eternal beauty. I’m sure you gaze down on Sandy, as well, your children and grand children with awe. I miss your contagious laughter and pinochle playing. We had a time RV camping didn’t we? Miss you.

Sandy, Carrie, Christy and Daniel: We are so saddened to hear of Myron's passing. We so enjoyed his laughter and great spirit. We and the people he touched are surely going to miss such a wonderful individual but how wonderful for those in Heaven that he has arrived and will take his seat next to all those whom God has chosen thus far to be a part of His kingdom. May God be with all of you during this difficult time.

Sandy and Christy,

What a shock it was to learn of Myron's passing on Saturday. Our hearts go out to each of you and the entire family. Myron was such a special man. He will be truly missed by many. I ran across a saying the other day that I hope one day will be said about my life at my passing: "Don't cry because it's over. Laugh because it happened." That's the way many people will look at Myron's life. He brought smiles and laughter to many people.

May God hold you in His loving arms during this time.
