    To the Myers Family – Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Mom (Helen Stroup) will be very sad to hear of his passing. After my father died he was very good to her and helped with so many things. She always thought she could call upon him and your mother and it was a source of comfort to our family.
