    I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Myron. Grandma Fae thought the world of him. My biggest memory of him was that he always had that big smile that he has in this photo. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all. (I’m MaryAnn’s youngest daughter. )

    Thinking of the entire Hoyer family. The video tribute is beautiful. Peace and comfort to all who loves him.

    Janet, so sorry for your loss. You were so kind to my Dad (Marvin Clouser) when he was at MHRC. I haven’t forgot your kindness and won’t! And, then to find out I knew your sister Judy as well. You were a very giving person to the residents at MHRC and even to the families of those who lived a long way away from them (like me in Florida). God’s comfort to you — Rodney

    Dear Aunt Janet,
    I am so sorry that I am not able to come celebrate Uncle Mike’s life but watching that video and seeing his face makes me smile. I am praying for you and your family always and know that Mom and Dad are always just a phone call away. I will be moving into school in the fall and then I will be just a phone call a way as well if you ever need anything. You are so loved and so is Uncle Mike. I am sorry for your loss.
