Mrs Brown was a wonderful woman and great friend to my mother ( Letha Reynolds) for MANY years. I remember the 2 of them visiting and going to different functions together and always having a good time. My sincere condolences to the family and friends as I know all too well the pain and sadness of losing a mother and best friend.

Myrtle has been my neighbor and friend for over 15 years... The beauty of her life has radiated to my home through her kind, thoughtful spirit... Her amazing love for horticultural...Our common love and passion for Jesus.... Her tender compassion.... Her beautiful understanding and empathy....My list could go on and on....Just last week we ran into each other at Foodlion and embraced in a hug only Myrtle could give....and in true selfless Myrtle fashion asked about my family right there at the end of an isle ....We caught each other up on life...The last thing I said was I love you and today that brings comfort to my heart as she was so truly loved by so very many♡♡♡ I know she is now listening intently to the Angel's singing as her hearing was restored ♡ I will miss you dear friend♡

We are so sorry about Aunt Myrtle passing. We loved her so much, she made us feel so welcome and happy when we visited her and the family. We will certainly miss her so much. I know she is in a much better place and she is not suffering any more. The home will not be the same without her presence. She always had something good to say and we loved her so.

May God bless all of the family at this time, sorry we will not be able to be there. We will be praying for all of the family. We love you all so much.
