Our condolences and prayers extend to all. Mrs. Myrtle was one of a kind. She was a loving and caring person. She always had a smile and a kind word. She took care of all but mostly Richard. You will be missed by all those who knew and loved You. Rest now in the loving arms of God. 🙏🏻

Rarely throughout life are you fortunate enough to meet a kind, caring and truly loving soul.
Myrtle not only possessed those qualities but taught them to her family and friends.
We are all better people having been touched by Myrtle.
My prayers to the family thru this very difficult time.
