I have struggled to find words to express my love, feelings, memories, sorrow and grief. I have also struggled to articulate how much Myra changed my life. Or how much this entire family has meant to me. What matters in that story is that, we all know. What some may not know, though - is that Mom had a deep appreciation for many aspects of the Catholic faith. That was my faith of origin before coming to the Shawe family. She loved and animals. “Who wants a cat, you need a cat” We need a dog.” Let’s love and nurture everyone who needs love and nurture. In this way and others, she embodied St Francis. When I was rage filled she would wink at me and suggest I needed to read the Prayer of St Francis. She wanted to be better for others. She wanted to give her best, she hurt for the hurt she caused others when she did. She, like all of us, struggled with her humanity. In all of our imperfection as humans she believed still that love should always prevail. And hers always did. She was compassionate, forgiving, loving and would give endlessly. She loved wholeheartedly. For Mom, Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

I will miss you Grandma Myra, I hope you get to play with all the puppies in heaven. Maybe you can make them all fluffy dog beds and give all the animals treats. Just no chocolate. Love Abby.

Myra's was a larger-than-life well lived. She touched so many along her path who are impacted by her compassionate actions and words. May Myra rest in peace and always know she'll remain forever an important part of her family and circle of friends. Thank you Mother-In-Law.
