Our Sincere Condolences
Myrna Sue you are such a true friend. I will relive our time on the walking trail every time I head out without you.
So much to talk about and we always left our conversations on the trail. From the beginning to the end, it was so enjoyable.
I will always remember so much about you.
Enjoy Heaven you’re the best.
I’m Sending Prayers & Condolences to her Family and Friends.
Myrna Sue was a good neighbor and a dear friend that was always there to lend a helping hand. We shared years of joys and sorrows. I compared her to a beautiful hummingbird because she was always on the move! I will miss her joyful spirit and sweet smile.
The only times I saw her in complete distress was when a snake was around. Living in the country provided ample encounters with them. If she was out mowing on her Grasshopper, and we heard a scream, we knew exactly what it was! She hated snakes!
It is such a comfort to know that she no longer suffers and is surrounded in that perfect love of our Heavenly Father! No more fears, not even of snakes!
We are so sorry to hear about your loss, our condolences… We plan to attend the service on Saturday to be there for you.
Francisco and Maria Tacoa
Cliff, you and your family are on my Rosary Prayers. Blessings during your time of reflection.
Myrna I know you are happy to have met your Father God and his son Jesus. It was tough what you went through and the pain you had I deal with daily it’s severe and prevents me from doing a lot of things. I pray for you to enjoy your time in heaven even though you left this earth sooner than most of wanted but it won’t be long before I come to join you.
I would often run into your mother in town long after I had you as students. She always remembered me and we always had a great chat. She always asked about my family and was very gracious in telling me about your journeys after Holt Elementary. I was very sad to see if her passing and I know you will miss her very much. Much love to you two girls.
