    My sympathy to the family. As I knew Myrna for only 4 short years she was a tough old bird as they say. She and Mom were good together at the Golden Living Center. I enjoyed the discussions with her and helping her with the life story booklet. Myrna always came to the gift shop when I was working and had a treat or two. Mom and I played Bingo on Sat mornings with her and she always took the apple and gave it to me. My prayers are for safe travels to the family at this time of year.
