    Words cannot express the sympathy I feel for the Myers family. Ms. Myers came to Georgia and visited her daughter Alisha. I never got the opportunity to meet her but through her daughter I felt the love just by her sending me lunch at work; and from then on, I was in love. Alisha, I’m speechless and I know your mother is proud of the women you are today. Remember and embrace the good times and know she will always be within you! Catina David Montgomery, AL
