    I only knew of Myron, never knew him personally, but hearing about him inspired me to write a short story about a NYC artist who returns every year to his small hometown in northeastern Nebraska and has a romance with a high school classmate there, whose ex-husband doesn’t take kindly to that fact and decides to kill them. I always wanted to meet him but never did, and now it’s too late, alas… RIP, Myron…
