  7. Was there ever anyone more good natured and kind hearted than Myron Shura? Thus he was when we were boys; thus he remained as a husband and father, and thus shall he be in Heaven. I will be with you in spirit and with the happy memories we shared during our earlier years Elvera. My prayers go out for Myron, you, and your family. We have a common history across family, church and joyous occasions, and we know that we share a part of ourselves with each other.

Despite the gulf of time and distance, I am saddened by your loss. Regards, Bert

You were always a source of encouragement for all of your grandchildren, and as they grow older, they understand this. You are missed greatly and don’t worry about mom, we all look over her and take care of her. Keep sending you vibes to me as I feel close to you when I feel them. I love you and miss you greatly, and have learned what is important in life over other things, from your passing. I love you always, and look after Dominic for me. I will express my thoughts again, another time, and until we meet again, hopefully later in life, keep watch, I feel you! Loving you and missing you, DeeDee///////////////////////////////1
