Myra was one of the strongest, kindest and funny woman I know. She taught the rest of us what it's like to grab life by the tail and live it. She'll always be in my heart. I am blessed to have had her as my friend. My condolences and love to her family and all those who mourn her.

I always say everything happens for a reason and to be able to meet and care for ms Myra was a blessing from us talking about nursing to her doing her crosswords every morning still keeping her mind sharp. We had our inside jokes I would never forget sleep in peace ms Myra ??
