Catherine...my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother. May you and your family find peace and comfort in the Lord in this difficult time. Know that your friends love you and are praying for you.

To all the Myrick and Barrow family: please know that you have our deepest sympathy on the passing off Mrs. Myrick. She was truly a very special lady, endowed with too many virtues to count. Sadly, there are fewer and fewer of her generation to teach those of us left behind those precious qualities that seem to be virtually "gone with the wind".

John & Jane Mullino, Savannah, GA

The Myricks were one of the first families when we moved to Ardsley Park. Alice was always the most welcoming even to the younger ones. I shall miss her. Just remember all the positive memories.
