    I'll always have fond memories of Mrs. "C." She was a great lady, and she lived a wonderful and long life. If I didn't live all the way out here on the West Coast, I would definitely be there in person. I considered her and the rest of the Calzavara family part of MY family. Bless her soul, and may she rest in peace.

    Ken, Bill and John, I didn't get to know her well, but whenever I was in her company, I was always welcomed. I felt the same way about your late dad. They were a wonderful couple. Your mom was blessed with a long life and fantastic sons and daughters-in-law.  It may not have been much, but I'm glad to have had some time with her, and ever since I've gotten to know Ken, we've had a connection that's been more like brothers than friends. May Myra's memory be for a blessing, and may she rest in peace.

    I am so sad that I was not able to tell Myra about the passing of my sister Linda, Myra's dear friend. It all started when my sister offered a ride to Myra when she was walking home from church when it was very hot. For several wonderful years, Linda, Myra, Mary, Elaine, and Mary Kay would be a team and I was included many times! Having dinner together were some if the best times for all of us. God bless you Myra -you were loved. May you rest in perfect peace. God bless all of Myra's loved ones.

    Myra ("Moo") was such a lovely, loving, joyous person. I am saddened to hear of her passing and grateful she lived such a rich, long, life. She was always so kind and welcoming to me. My deepest condolences to Ken, Bill, John, and the entire family.
