Title The Featherless Bird
Description Myron's greatest contribution, however, was bringing music into people's souls as a "healer of men." His life was spent as a Medical Doctor in Delta where he delivered 5000 babies and performed countless operations. [His wile and daughter were his assistants.] Myron somehow found time to serve as Mayor of Delta and as Sunday School Superintendent. Bishop and High Councilman while continuing his medical practice. On two different occasions his life was spared by miraculous means that he might accomplish the work he was sent here to do. He devoted his life to helping and healing others. His fondest memories of his life at home in Manti were of the family around the old piano in the parlor singing their hearts out. Charles Heber and Alice Ann and their nine Birds are all gone now but their numerous posterity still continue to sing, to play, to teach, to gather their families around the piano or the campfire and echo the sweet melodies of the Birds who came to Manti in 1896. They remember with special fondness, Myron, the last of the "Featherless Birds." who was born that year and who gave so much as a "healer of men" in the song of life.
