    To the Mercado Family: I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Ms Myrna was such a warm person. Whenever our paths crossed, she always greeted me with open arms..a smile, and a kiss on the cheek. She was a genuine child of God...I will miss her. Death is painful, Jesus wept when he lost his friend..i too weep at this time, but, because I know God to be a God of His Word, this is the beginning of life eternal for my sister Myrna!!! My prayers are with the Mercado Family...may God meet you at your point of need, at this time, and always. Yours In Christ, Jewell
