    I wish I could ask you how was your first week in Heaven.

    Gale, Greg, Kim, Debbie, & Greg, Jr. – Bro. Myers was a prince of a man. I’ve admired him since I was a child. I loved to just sit in the room and listen to his conversations with others. Bro. Myers had so much wisdom. Two years ago, we were able to visit and it was just like old times back in New Orleans. Occasionally, I’d call from MD just to chat with him. We always talked about our days in New Orleans and about how good God is. Tom and I will miss you, Bro. Myers. Our lives were enriched by you. Love & prayers to the family.

    I met Glenn at church in Henderson, Texas when we were in high school. He was a very dear friend all these years. We were very close and spent a lot of time together. I loved him like a brother. He had an appreciation and hunger for God. I will miss him. I’m praying for his family.

    It was fall of 2001 when I came to know Brother Curtis and Sister Gale Myers. They lived in their two-story home then. I needed housing during a two-year work period with the LA Department of Education as a school improvement specialist assigned to a local New Orleans City school. After much time of worry and later asking God for His help, the name Myers came to me from someone overhearing my predicament and need. I believe, to this day that God was looking after me in my time of need when He made it possible for Brother and Sister Myers to open their home to me. From the day I first met them and walked into their home, I knew that they were some of the most awesomely kind and caring people I would ever come to know.

    Southern hospitality could easily be defined by the mere mention of the Myers name. The Myers took me in, not so much as a border, but as an extended part of their family. During this time, I came to know and enjoy the company of Greg, Debbie, “Little” Greg, Kim, and the whole host of individuals who treasure the friendship of the Myers. Sister Myers let me know during our first meeting that I was welcome to share meals with them, “when she cooks,” as she expressed it. My memory tells me that there were very few times when she didn’t cook, but more vivid are the times when she did. If you have not been blessed with her cooking, you have surely missed the blessing of your life. Her chicken pot pie is my favorite.

    I value the friendship of the Myers now well beyond my time in New Orleans. Brother Myers became perhaps my most treasured friend. He easily became like an older brother to me, though I value him with the respect of a father. His calm, kind, and encouraging demeanor has provided so much support for me during the times I had to be away from my wife and children. Afternoon talks and projects in the garage are great memories of mine that I will always have to remind me of this awesomely Godly man who had the heart of a servant. Brother Myers was always eager to share the good news of salvation through his God and our conversations would invariably involve spiritual topics. He had the spirit of a minister and the desire to do missionary work when and where he could.

    It is with a very sad heart that I say goodbye to my friend, my mentor. I am confident that Brother Curtis Myers has fought a good fight, has kept the faith and today rejoices in the presence of his God. I rejoice with him and look forward to the day when we can all join to worship our Lord. God’s speed Brother Myers. Your wise counsel and kind spirit are sorely missed here today.

    In August of 1983 I moved next door to some of the finest folks I could’ve ever met. Although we were only neighbors for one year, I have considered them friends for a lifetime. Bro. Myers was like an adopted father to me. I loved his gentle spirit and I know Dennis loved him as he would a brother. Sis. Myers, Greg, Kim…you are all in our prayers. We love you dearly. Kathy & Dennis Patterson

    Bro Myers was the BEST of the best!!!! Joe and I never had a closer friend. I will miss him so much!!!!

    Eddy Perret says:

    I looked up to you as a kid. You were kind and always encouraged me. You never judged and always had a kind word.

    The last time I saw you was special. It brought so many good memories. I know you will be missed. But you are in the arms of the Lord now. I’ll see you soon!
