Bob I am very sad to hear about Myrna's passing. During the time that you both participated in the HD support group I grew very fond of Myrna and you too. She was always gentle and caring. I was very impressed by her art and mostly by her sweet disposition. My thoughts are with you. I know that you were a great caretaker and loving husband helping her to navigate the last years of her life. My sincere condolences Mirta
