On November 1st, Stephen’s Grandma Mildred Myers went home to be with Jesus. She was 95 years old. Stephen flew home to be with his family, support his mom, and attend Grandma’s funeral. He also got to be Uncle Stephen for the first time as he met Brooklyn, Stephanie & Jason’s baby girl.
Also, on Memorial Day in 2007, Stephen and I drove up to visit Grandma Myers at her home in northern Indiana. We picked her up and drove her to the cemetery in Terra Haute where her husband, Floyd Myers, was buried. It was special to see Stephen caring for his grandma.
My favorite Grandma Myers story that Stephen tells is when he or one of his siblings was riding in the car with Grandma at the wheel. She had cataracts, so she couldn’t see well at all. She ended up hitting someone’s mailbox and knocking it over. Grandma stopped the car, popped the trunk, shoved the damaged mailbox in her trunk and drove off! Problem solved! Mailbox? What mailbox?
