Dear Errol and family:
I was so saddened to hear of Myrna’s passing. May the wonderful and precious memories you shared through these many years sustain and comfort you in the days to come. In my mind, she will forever be a 16 year old cheerleader at our high school. You were blessed to be able to share your lives with her.

It saddened our hearts to hear of Myrna's passing. She was more of a family member than a customer. We will all miss her deeply.

Dear Uncle Errol, dear Colby (sherri), sisters and other family members/her friends,

I was deeply saddened to hear of Myrna's seemingly sudden passing. She had reached out to me in her final days and to my Mom for which I am truly grateful, I told her she was loved and I was here for her, anytime. I wish I told her also how special she really was, such an true inspiration, a wonderful gifted artist, kind & loving mother/wife/sister and extremely fabulous, generous Aunt with style and pizazz. SO gentle and kind was her soul, she didn't harm anyone, always wanting to help even though she struggled at times. She was so very special to me and I will treasure all the great memories with her in my childhood growing up (as she made these wonderful custom cakes for all us kids) as well as seeing her on her 70th when me and my Mom visited you in Stettler, we had a great visit and chat(awesome pizza trip!). I always tried to be there for her no matter what as she was there for me. Needless to say all the treasures that were her will be dearly missed by all and I hope you and the rest of us can rest peacefully in the good memories had with her and hold her close to our hearts forever. I know I will. Myrna I cherished you and will continue to.
May you all left behind find peace in comforting one another and truly expressing to those you love how you feel before the time comes it may be too late and they might not know how special they really are. We are all better people and blessed for having known a person such as Myrna. Not to go on and on but I wrote a poem I wish to share with all as I am an artist too and create, esp in times of sadness, so please read below:

"Life seems so still until someone dies, then it may be too late to say goodbye, We must cherish every moment, savour every day for there may be no tomorrow they always say, live your life once and live it well, throw fear and care into the swell, don't be scared for nothing holds you back , except your confidence you might lack. There are angels one for each of us, caring for our souls, til they call upon us, life's final goal" "Rest in peace Myrna".

Myrna is at peace and in harmony though we will all miss her, my sympathies to all,

Your forever loving Niece, Jemma Jacksen
