My condolences to the entire Myers Family. Jim was a life-long contributing member of the Greater Myersville Community and I personally enjoyed his presence whenever we were together addressing something for the Town or seeing him regularly at his favorite seat in the local McDonalds enjoying time with family and friends. Jim's hard work, time and passion for the Town of Myersville have contributed to what makes Myersville the wonderful Town it is today. I will mostly miss Jim's smile, as it always gave me a great feeling, but I know he's at peace.

God Bless you Jim and your Family.
