Myrna was a caring, loving person and will be missed by all who knew her.

This picture was taken at my daughter's wedding reception in April, 2008. We had a New Orleans' second line then and I'm sure Mryna is leading one now in heaven.

Myrna was the most compassionate, kindest, caring and loving colleague one may have had! Not only did I work with her at Stonegate Elementary , I also considered her a loyal friend. There are many happy moments I can recall with her. We had a talent show at the school. "Ms. Bubbly Myrna" said, "Come on girls let's participate in the show. We can be the Supremes!" She convinced us to do so. We got our outfits together, had a few rehearsals, and were ready to BREAK-A-Leg to the tune of "Stop in the Name of Love!". It was hilarious, but more importantly we had fun. Myrna was loved by her students and her Stonegate family. She will be sorely missed!

One of the most cherished moments of my life will be making Gumbo Myrna with Myrna. Suzette and I agreed that we were going to follow Myrna's directions "to the letter" - acting only as her arms and legs to make the her famous gumbo. Using only a card to spell out directions, Myrna directed every step of the process - even inspecting (and approving) the roux. The ultimate test came when Floyd took his first taste and said "This is your mother's gumbo."
