Grandma Myrtle was such a kind, beautiful, loving person. It was rare to see her without a smile. She was gentle and will be missed! I remember going to her home for many many years to make fudge during Christmas time. She always welcomed me and made me feel like I was one of her family members. How amazing to be resting with Jesus right now. As much as we miss you and wish you were here, we know we will see you again one day!

My grandma was a beautiful, gentle, kind, loving person. She loved quietly, lived humbly, and officially turned her life to Jesus a few years before she left this world. I could go on for days about the kind of woman she was for our family and me. Her gentle spirit made you feel at peace and her serious love for her dogs made you a bit jealous too. My grandma would let me put on the bachelorette even though she thought it was trash t.v., she’d guilt trip me to eat ice cream with her before bed, she’d try to feed left over shrimp and steak to the dogs when it was my turn to buy food, and she’d talk and laugh and giggle with you until it was 11pm at night. My grandma was silly, joyful, sneaky, happy, wild, funny, bossy, and absolutely in love with her family. That’s my grandma. She told me she wanted to try and live longer so she could meet my children. I’m sad to see her go, but there are so many beautiful memories I can share one day with them. I hope that one day I’m as good of a grandma to my grandchildren as she was to me. Until we meet again grandma. ❤️
