    Since working for Myers Fisher at FDIC from 1977 to 1982, Myers and Shirley have been a couple very dear to me. I still make a chicken casserole from the recipe that Shirley gave me after inviting me to dinner in Alexandria one night! My husband Jim and I were also privileged to visit them in their beautiful home in Williamsburg and to have dinner with them during a visit there. I was heartbroken when this year's Christmas card to Shirley was returned to me. Diane and Susan, I will always remember your parents, the kindness and hospitality extended to me during my years in Washington. Blessings, Clare Nichols Long
