I will always and forever keep my "biggest" sister, Myrt, in my heart and my memory. She was a loving, giving woman who never wanted to be thanked, but who taught me to "pass it on." I join with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in sorrow at her passing. I loved her and I know she is with God.

Joe and I always appreciated her visits as she came to the Shaklee Office. Joe loved to hear her tell of her adventures in life. A special lady with a dear heart.
