Not sure what to say?

I will miss my special friend and all our talks sitting in her backyard with all her beautiful flowers.

Aunt Myrtle was a remarkable woman whose unfailing zest for life and adventure were inspiring. I will always treasure the letters she wrote to me when I was a child, and I will always be grateful for her unfailing kindness and encouragement.

I will always remember Aunt Myrtle as the kind hearted woman who opened her heart and home to the step children of her brother Garner. From Christmas parties new to us with the Archer family to quiet visits at mom's house. The world lost a beautiful spirit, a woman that defines the word "Integrity".

I will miss one of my favorite Sister-in-laws. We always had the best Christmass at her and Howards' house. Myrtle was a very special person.

I love my Aunt Myrtle and will keep her in my heart forever. I will miss our lovely talks and days we shared having tea.

Myrtle was a dear friend to our family for many, many years.
Our thoughts and Prayers are with you Jay. May your memories help to console you at this time. Myrtle will most definitely be missed by many.
Friends, Elaine Baker, and
Marv and Sharon Gallego

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
