    Dear Rosalie and family,
    I am so very sorry to hear about Myron. His vibrant personality and love for his family will surely be missed. I know my parents are very sad they didn’t get to see him. Myron was such a good friend to my dad. I love hearing stories of their outings and will continue to love hearing those stories. It is a difficult time with everything going on in the world and friends can’t be there to support all of you. I’m so glad you all have each other. Jerry and I are thinking of you.
    With sadness,
    Bonnie and Jerry

    I came across Myron’s obituary while looking at another one from a friends husband.

    First I would like to say My thoughts and prayers will be with the family, I am so sorry for your loss.

    I worked for Myron when I was in High School and that was about 40 years ago. I sat back in my seat when I saw this, it has been years.

    Through my life I have met many people but some stand out. Myron was always great to me and treated me very well. He was funny, and a good person to be around. I always enjoyed going there.

    I have not seen you in years old friend but some how I feel a loss.

    Rest in Piece

        He had the liquor store on Hope st in Providence back in 1980. I was the friend of a young man who was dating your Daughter, his name was Carlos. We would go to meet Myron at the store, and he would give us instructions on repairs needed at apartments that he owned.
