My condolence to Mr. Myers family.  No matter where I saw him, he always remembered my name.  Whether it was in Oxford, or at the Quarryville fair, he always took time to say hi and ask how my family was.  How does a teacher remember his students like that?  Mr. Myers was my favorite teacher of all times.  May god bless him in his heavenly travels.  Love and prayers.  Jacquie  Class of 1971. OAHS.
