    Mike and sorry for your loss. Myra fought one heck of a battle...a real trooper! I know you, Mike, and Myra from GE. I was in maintenance and first met Alvin before I met Myra. Liked that girl right from the start. Always had a smile and a big hello for me whenever I saw her. My wife met Myra for the first time at the Hope Center in Asheville as she too was undergoing chemotherapy. Myra made quite an impression on my wife...they talked and talked like they had known each other for years. That's the kind of person Myra was...she never met a stranger. My prayers go out to all who knew and loved Myra. She surely will be missed.
