    My deepest sympathies go to all of you. Your Husband/best friend, father and grandfather was one of the sweetest men I will ever know. I loved to see him each Sunday when he was still able to get to church. His smile and eternal optimism was infectious. He was a joy to be near and will be greatly missed, but never ever forgotten.
    With great love, Janice (Lovely) Girard

    I was sorry to hear of uncle Myrons’ passing. I have many wonderful memories of him as a little girl. I play with my grandson the same way “trot trotting to Boston”. He was a wonderful man with a wonderful family. I am a better person for knowing him.
