To the loved ones of Myrna: Sorry I won't be there to pay my respects but please know that she meant a lot to me. She always treated everyone with respect and was one of the first people in Walkerton when I moved her to make me feel like this could be my home and where I should raise my two sons. She was right and I thank her for showing me and sharing our love for this community. Myrna will always hold a special place in my heart.
My fondest regards,
Connie (Medich) Fansler
