Hi, I am the daughter of Kenneth and Zelma Myers, granddaughter of Flora and Ed Myers and great niece of Leonard Myers. I do not remember Ray however it brings back a lot of very good memories of my childhood and of my wonderful family. I tell everyone that the Myers family owned half of the block on 26th and 3rd Avenue in Council Bluffs! Leonard was such a special person to us kids. We travel which is why I just now found out about Ray. You have my sympathies and prayers. I am now 66 years old, married and have two grown daughters with three grandchildren. We still live in Council Bluffs at 213 Lori Ln 51503. I would be glad to hear from you if you would like to correspond. Again, our sympathy and love. Anna Myers Ellingsen
