I am so sorry to just have found out about the passing of Myrthel. We really enjoyed taking her to places. She was a wonderful person. We will truly miss her smiling face and her telling us to go ahead and leave she could make it up her stairs alone. Once again we are so sorry for your loss.

Myrthel is (not was) my aunt, a very loving caring lady. She was a servant to our Lord, Jesus; always in prayer and offering her life to GOD, encouraging others to do likewise. Rest In Peace my dear aunt.

Sorry for your great loss, but at the same time I'm rejoicing with her great homecoming.
Myrthel had the prettiest blue eyes and the greatest smile you'd ever seen. And, she genuinely cared for everyone too. Always a lady, but yet could be such an ornery soul. Who didn't love Myrthel the first time they met her?
