My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. I knew Myrna from the Alzheimer Support Group that we both attended over the past few years. She was always so sweet and caring. She had a constant smile and a genuine concern for others. Everyone at the Group was upset to hear of her passing. We will all miss her.

Dear Heather, Connie and families along with Myrna's family. Hugs to all of you. Myrna was the first child I met when we were neighbours of your parents. Myrna was in grade one. My Mother was her teacher. Your Mother babysat me occasionally. I was just a toddler. My parents were very fond of Myrna and valued your family's friendship.

Helen Harwood (Anderson)

So very sorry to hear of Myrna's death. I last saw her in August 1987 at the Westmeath Public School reunion and it was so nice to see her . She is my first cousin and we were in school together and went skating together as kids . Would love to be able to see you all at this time. I am the same age as Myrna and her death makes me aware of the uncertainty of our lives. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers and may be blessed with comfort in the days and months ahead! Cousin Betty Tate Slump Ottawa Ontario

Lisa and Kim, I've known your mom (and you) all my life, though it's been a long time since we've met face to face. She was a faithful friend to my mother through thick and thin and she will be deeply missed. I always remember her laugh and "Oh golly!" In particular I remember when we all went to Niagara Falls and had such a great time. I'm keeping you both in my prayers.

Words cannot express how saddened I am to hear of the passing of Myrna. I hope you find comfort is knowing what a wonderful person Myrna was. We had many laughs with the Lioness club, with VON and even after I left for the dark side of Home care. Myrna has left a great legacy.

Marilyn Smith

Lisa, Kim and Art, my sincerest condolences to all of you. I loved Myrna and will remember her fondly for how much fun we had with her and you as kids and for the amazing friend she has been to Mom for all these years. She was so much fun to be around. I'm sorry I can't be with you now. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Sending you all love, Gina
