Sending my most sincere condolences on the passing of Myrtle Shelton. My heart goes out to all of the Shelton &Wilson families, and to Myrtle's friends and extended family. She was a strong woman of faith, who had a lovely sense of humor and positive attitude. I learned so much from her as her daughter-in-law of over 30 years. She enjoyed sharing family recipes and gardening techniques as well as opening her home to her neighbors and fellow parishioners and retiree friends. She will be in my thoughts and prayers. May her reunion in Heaven with her large family and friends whom preceeded her in death be joyous and may she enjoy her peace surrounded by the Lord and His angels.

I want to extend my deepest sympathy to all of Myrtle’s family! My heart is heavy with the loss of this beautiful lady - yet I feel quite peaceful, knowing she was in such a good place, so close to the Lord. We had so many fun conversations over the past year, always expressing our love for each other. Myrtle and the Shelton family have made such a huge difference in my life. Truly God put her in my life . . . and at a time I desperately needed her. Now it’s my turn to gracefully give her back to Him. Amen.

Myrtle was one of a kind. Her love of God, family and others was evident in her life everyday. She was a blessing to those around her and touched many lives. I can say she influenced mine. You will be missed. I love you Myrtle.

Myrtle is a wonderful person, full of life, with a caring heart and loving spirit. It was my privilege to minister to her and get to know her personally. As I said, Myrtle IS a wonderful person and now a glorified child of God. She is not dead but is alive forevermore. Easter is all about the resurrection of Jesus, Myrtle's Savior, and because He lives she lives as well. Praise God for eternal life with Him.
