I love you Myra. We have so many memories—some good, some a little testy! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. We started out school mates in our teen years, became friends, then sisters in law! You are part of my family–44 years strong. You gave us our first nephew! Save me a seat at the domino table in heaven! Maybe Todd and I can beat you and Bubba then! I miss you already! You will NEVER be forgotten. Rest in peace.

Nathaniel, your words were so sweet! She truly loved you guys and talked about y’all all the time.
Myra was the funniest ,kindest , most loving person I know and she could drive you crazy with laughter in an instant and I loved her so much for it! I miss her every minute of the day. It didn’t matter if we didn’t talk every day we loved each other more than sisters. She was my best friend for 30 plus years !
Rest In Peace my Beautiful Friend
You will be missed by all.
My heart cannot express how much I will miss you. My mind keeps playing our conversations on a loop and I keep thinking of things that I really want to tell you. We have the same birthday. I know how proud you were of that. I won’t get to tell you Happy Birthday next year. One thing I really hope you knew is what a special woman you truly were and how deeply loved you are. The void you have left is deep and wide. But I know you are with our Lord and that makes me rejoice. I anticipate the day of our reunion.
Until we meet again, your loving niece,
Nene you were always such a genuine, strong, brave and wise person. You were never afraid to speak your mind and you always stood for what was right. The worlds lost someone so great, you’ve taught my mom how to be a mother to her children. You’ve loved my brothers and I as if we were your own and even your grand daughter in law Sang. She will miss all the post cards and letters you used to send us as will I. It always made us so happy when we’d get your post cards and letters because we knew you loved and thought about us. You’ve shown my family tremendous support and we are truly grateful for that. I’ll never forget you telling me “you better hold onto her and don’t let her go”. It’s never goodbye though, always until next time.
We miss you Nene, love
– David & Sang
This is our first Christmas without you, Aunt Myra. You may not be physically here, but I know you are in all our hearts.
My precious friend, Myra, I will treasure our friendship forever til I join you in heaven one day. I will miss our long conversations of encouragement in the Lord for each other. My life was very blessed by having you as my friend and sister in the Lord.
To Bubba, Adrienne, Joshua, Joe, Nell and Jenny….. my heart hurts for your loss but I will keep you all in my prayers as you go this time. Sending much love and hugs. ❤️
Anna and Mike
