Rhonda and Robert and families,

I just heard about the loss of your mother. I am so shocked and so saddened. She was so much a part of my life and I know Gary's, too. You have my deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers. I just don't know what to say other than I'm so sorry. Blessings.

Church just will not be the same without Ms. Mabel; we "fought" with her every Sunday over who would get the best pew! I'm sure she has a front row seat now!
She had a heart for children that I will always admire, and her cheery, witty disposition will forever be an inspiration to me.
I'm praying for you all.

To Mabel's family:
My Aunt Betty Palmer notified my father, Roy L. Myers, and he called me to tell me of Mabel's passing. Our deepest sympathies to you on her move from earth to Glory. We hope you will be comforted by her life of service to our Savior.

We did not know Mabel well, and only met her a few times, but she impressed us as a kind and generous woman, much like her mother, my great-aunt Audra.

May our Lord give you strength during this time.

Roy Lynn Myers
