    So so sorry to hear about Myrna. She was my friend and mentor when I started working at Good Sam Rehab first as a nursing assistant, then as an LPN and RN. She taught me much and taught me well. Always a compassionate person. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  4. Debbie Burton-Haupt says:

    Myrna – you will be missed, and I will keep your family in my prayers. I too started as a nursing assistant, became an LPN then an RN. Myrna was a great mentor, teacher and always had a smile. A sad day for those who knew her….
