Aunt Methyl was a caring and kind and loving person. She was always a joy to be around. She had a way of making you smile and feel happy around her. Even though I have not seen her in awhile I will miss her. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

Aunt Methyl will be missed. I was privileged to stay in her home many times. We would talk about family , books we both shared a love for and crocheting. She would always ask what kind of project I was working on. She would call me honeybun whenever we talked. So glad that I was able to come to her birthday party.❤️Sandy
