I read about Myra's death in the Star Ledger. I am so sorry for your loss. Death of a loved one is very distressing even if the person is elderly or sick. The Bible teaches us that death was not part of God's original plan. He wanted man to live forever, in perfect health, on a paradise earth. Man disobeyed God and brought about sin and death to the human race. God's plan will still be realized because nothing can stop his purpose and he does not lie. Isaiah 55:11 states, "So my word that goes out of my mouth will be. It will not return to me without results, but it will certainly accomplish whatever is my delight. It will have sure success in what I send it to do." The Bible talks about a resurrection of those who have died. (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29) The Bible account in John 11:1-44 details a resurrection Jesus performed and which gives us the certainty that the resurrection of our loved ones will occur. The word resurrection in the Bible literally means "a standing up again" and "revival of the dead". The provision for resurrection of the dead is a magnificent expression of God's undeserved kindness. It displays his wisdom and power and is a means by which his original purpose regarding the earth and humans will be carried out. There is such a wealth of hope and knowledge found in the pages of the Bible. Sincerely, Paula
DH

Mrs. Cannara was my Sixth grade teacher. She was the nicest, most caring teacher I ever had.
It's hard to believe that 52 years have passed since then. It seems like only yesterday!
I'd like to extend my condolences to her family and all who knew and loved her.
Sincerely, Dan Hewson

My sincere condolences to Christopher and Cindy. My memories of Myra at family events, are filled with laughter. She was loving toward Aunt Ruth and Uncle Mickey all their lives and always stayed in touch with my Mother (Dolly). I know she’ll be missed by her family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Loved spending Christmas with Myra. She was always sweet and fun. I loved her jokes and stories. Many will miss her. I only got to know her first as a patient first but after her dear husband Raymond passed away I got to know her better.

Myra was one of the nicest and kindest woman I had the pleasure of meeting. Last summer I found a lump in my breast and since I am a survivor of breast cancer I was very worried. Myra offered to come with me to the Breast Center for support and she stayed there with me for 3 hours and my lump was found to be benign. I am sure her prayers helped see me through.
