    Unfortunately I never had the privilege of meeting Myrna, but I am Tonzel's mother-in-law. I can truly understand the grief over the loss of such a loved and wonderful person that Myrna was. I feel as if I knew her just from knowing her son for the past 15 years. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I hope to be able to physically meet each and every one of you some day.
