I worked with Ms. Myrtle at the PD for several years before she retired. A very sweet and kind lady. I am sorry to hear of her passing. My prayers are with her family.

Aunt Myrt, she was so special to us. No on knew how to pray like she did. She was such a model of what a Christian should be. I had so much fun shopping with my Aunts (Myrt, Winnie, Ila) and of course Momma (Vivian). We laughed and had a big time. Aunt Myrt will be missed but I'm so excited to know when I see her again she will be breathing with ease and healthy again!!!! Love you Aunt Myrt!!
