To the Family of Myrtle McCoy, I am so sorry for your loss during this difficult time. Myrtle was my supervisor with ACG and was very special to me. You have something to be very proud of having her as a mother, a sister, friend or other relative. A true Gem she was. I know God has taken her to a better resting place and will be fitted for her wings to protect all of us she was connected with. Amber I know exactly what you are going through as I loss my mother at a much younger age, but with all that she has instilled in you, you have a lifetime of memories to hold on to and share. I met you over at Tuckahoe School Clinic (W/Ms. Briscoe) prior to you entering HS yrs ago, so you may not remember me. As I know from how she always talked about you, that you was the Apple of her eyes. She will truly be missed by many and I pray that God will bring you peace and understanding as you have a lot of memories to hold on to and share. As long as God is first and foremost in your life, there is nothing impossible for you handle.

Much Love and Peace Family

There are people everyday that come into your life. Some sow a seed of negativity and some so a seed of positivity. I thank God for putting you in my life to sow a positive seed for life that see continue to bring for good fruit at a time of my need. I will carry that fruit and plant a seed from that fruit for the rest of my life. I will never ever forget the day in the laboratory when the Spirit of the Almighty God rained upon you that day and you just blessed our daddy God Almighty and he blessed you back. I did not see you everyday but you know I was praying for you and Amber. Amber You are a blessed young woman, to have had a wonderful mother who can impart the truth into you that will last eternity. Myrtle will always hold that special place in my heart. I can oly imagine the peace and happiness she is expierencing now. Take your rest sister girl, life has just begun.

Myrtle- I came to "know" you upon your return to Arlington County after being away for some time. Oh how we connected because we shared the same Father, our heavenly Father and from that 1st encounter, God drew us together. I'm so sorry I didn't get to say goodbye

To Myrtle's family, what a remarkable woman of God. She is with Jesus, whom she loved so much!!!

Rest on my dear friend, a dear sweet friend until I see you again...

I miss you Myrtle!!!

My dear friend, a woman I felt close enough to call "sister". Rom 8:39............ "(Nothing can) separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." May the Lord God comfort the family during your time of grief.
