    Mr. Myles was a good man, and a wonderful neighbor. He was our neighbor for many years in Woodland Hills and always a very interesting, kind person to visit with.

    ‘Papa Amos’ was a precious man and he held a special place in the hearts of the McNish family.
    The entire Myles family also holds a special place in our hearts and we will be thinking of and praying for all of you.
    Many Prayers and Much Love,
