Dirk & Sally, and family, My sympathies to you in the lost of Dirk's mother. I love what was written - "she was always available for her family." That is an amazing legacy. With love, Cindy Nyhoff

We are so sorry to hear of Myra's passing. Praying for the family.

My heart is heavy, but I rejoice that my dear friend Myra is now in heaven with the Savior that she deeply loved. She and Ted were very supportive of our family, and Myra would ask about how the kids and grandkids were doing every time I visited her. My sincere sympathy extends to the whole family that were deeply devoted to her through the changes in her life. I'm so happy that she was in church on Easter Sunday, and hope that the sounds of the "Hallelujah Chorus" stayed with her to the end.

She would always bring up the Duffendach my parents were also very good friends with Bill and Marilee.

Myra was one of the sweetest women that I have ever known . There simply aren't enough superlatives to describe her.
My memories go back over 50 years ago to when we moved onto Parmelee St. Your house was full of kids and activity but your mom was always available with help or a meal or a babysitter (thank you especially but not exclusively Christy) when the pace of our house picked up quickly with the birth of our twin boys.
Mike was a gift from God to me then and many times over the years. I will never forget her smile which radiated Jesus to every one she met. How she will be missed!
Rejoicing with her and grieving with all of you...

My sympathy to the family of Myra. We had many fun trips with Ted and Myra over the years.

I got to know Myra when I started to play tennis with her group. Always upbeat and encouraging, while her Christian faith also shined through. We (Cal and I ) will miss her as a faithful member at Harderwyk crc as well. Vonnie and Cal Langejans

We would like to extend our sympathies to the family. Many years ago while attending Western Theological Seminary (from 1972-1975) we along with our 2 young children were neighbors living next door to Myra and Ted when they came to their little cottage on Waukazoo Dr. We remember what a very kind and loving neighbor she was to us.

My sympathy to your family. I met her when my family were members at Faith CRC. She was a wonderful example of her faith. Well done good and faithful servant.
