God gives every person their own unique song. It’s one that will play their entire life long. Through the love that they give and the gifts that they share. Through the memories they make and the dreams that they dare... It’s a song filled with beauty and day-to-day grace that plays through until they see God face to face. A song heard in the heart, loud and clear. A song if we listen, we’ll always still hear. What a beautiful way to celebrate her through the song she lived and the song you’ll carry forever in your heart! Myrtle always made me smile and will continue to do so! She was loved by many and will be missed greatly!

Jimmie Lou and Marla, I am so sorry to learn of Aunt Myrtle’s passing. I know so well the pain you are feeling today. Your mom was a dear person to our family, and she is such a huge part of so many of my childhood memories. She was probably the best cook I ever knew, and I will never forget the many Thanksgiving “feasts” spent at your house on E. 3rd Street! We know that heaven is a little brighter because she’s there, in the arms of our Lord and Savior, and free from all earthly troubles and cares. We love you guys so much.

What a kind beautiful woman. She always made me smile and laugh with stories of Marla. I loved visiting her at her home and at Marla’s house. Bringing her surprises and seeing her face light up were the highlights of my day. Myrtle Mae was my 2 nd momma❤️ She was loved by all and will be greatly missed. I love you Myrtle Mae.

Growing up, it was always a quiet comfort to knock on the door and be greeted with hello Nikki. Her love for her husband and children was inspiring. Never as much as her belief and love for her Savior, Jesus Christ. I personally take comfort she is with her Lord as well as, her loving husband and son celebrating their reunion. No longer in this world in pain, sickness or fear of pandemics. She will forever be a beautiful memory of my childhood. She will forever be remembered and always missed. Sending my love to Marla and Jimmy Lou and the entire family. My prayers for comfort, strength and peace in this most difficult time of your life. ♡ xoxo Thank you Mrs Scott for being the wonderful momma you always were-
