My deepest condolences to the children and John. I met Myra when she first came to the courthouse as a recruit for the Sheriff Department. She was always the nicest person. Always a smile and kind word when talking to me. Loved her family and was always professional in her job. I will miss her smile. I was out of town and didn‚??t know of her passing until recently. My heart is broken and I‚??m so sad for the family. Myra‚??s fight is over. Job well done. Myra is at peace with the Lord. Take comfort in knowing that one day you‚??re going to be together again. God is in control. You all are in my prayers. John, I am proud of you. You never gave up either. My love to you and your children. Please forgive me for not being there. My heart is broken too. Much love and God be with you all. Mrs. Desiree Wheeler. Court clerk and friend from the courthouse.
