Lee, Sharon, Craig, Dave:  I am so sorry to hear about Myrtle.  I have very fond memories of stopping by her house to get a drink or just say "hi".  Your family was like my family for so long, I felt like she was sort of my grandma, too.  My sympathies are with you all.  It will be a big adjustment to the whole town to not have Myrtle in her house on the corner where she should be.  Sending you a hug and love, Jeri

My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with Myrtle's family. I know that she is in a wonderful place now, with our creator. My interaction with the family at the time of her passing was sad, but I was glad to know that her passing was in the presence of her loved ones, and that it was painless and peaceful. God's love to you all,
Dawn Kern, RN
