What a beautiful woman Aunt Myrtle was both inside and out. So much pure love for all of us. Never witnessed a judgmental side of her. She always was so interested in our family and how we all were. I truly tried to be a replica of Aunt Myrtle,but I don't think anyone could fit her mold. What a beautiful day it was when Heaven opened up to welcome her home. What a true gift from God she was to so many. Our loss is Heaven's gain. We send our condolences and prayers for all the children and grandchildren whose life was so blessed by her love. She surely loved you all so very much.
