Pay Your Respects to Myra This Saturday
Friends and family of Myra Ical would like to invite the community to pay their last respects on Saturday, January 30, 2010 at the Santana Funeral Home located at 5352 Katy Freeway (corner of I-10 & T C Jester).
Myra Ical was a Houston transgender woman who was brutally murdered January 18th and whose memory was imediatly slandered by media. The community spoke out against the slander and organized the largest TG action in Houston’s history.After the community spoke up, the media corrected their portrayal of Myra’s life and death, the request for information leading to the arrest of Myra’s killer was carried on practically all Houston media and we now know the name of a person of interest.
Myra’s friends were moved beyond words by the response from the community. Many of them shared stories about Myra’s life – especially her compassion – with me. Myra’s family and friends asked me to extend this invitation to help them say goodbye to their loved one and our sister, Myra Ical between the hours of 1 and 9 PM this Saturday.
