With Deepest Sympathy

Meredith and I were deeply saddened to hear of my "Uncle" Myron's passing. We remember very fondly our visit with Myron and Sue several years ago and our subsequent trading of genealogical information on our joint family. My Dad (John Clarke, originally known as a child in Kingston as Julius Hissey) was half-brother of Myron's mother Wanna. Deepest condolences and sympathy to Sue, Byron, and the grand- and great-grand children. Gone but never forgotten.

Dear Sue, Byron, and family,
I was deeply saddened to hear of Myron's passing. I have known many men in my lifetime in all walks of life but I can think of no one that I respected more than Myron Gearhart. He was a special person and was aided by another special person his soul mate, Sue. May God comfort all of you at this trying time in your life.
