Myra was one of my dearest friends, and I will miss her so much! My prayers are with her beautiful family, and many loving friends. Myra knew how blessed she was to have such an amazing family. I know she is walking on the streets of Heaven and would not want to come back the way she was. She is in no pain, and has a new body. God bless all of you! Love, Linda
