I was very fond of Mrs. Culver. I remember her beautiful smile. She was my sister-in-laws mother, Mary Barnette.  I remember the first time that I met her - she was at Mary and Bud's wedding.  I was only 7 at the time.  I remember meeting Joyce and Bill also.  

I can remember going to their house in South Point, Oh.  They played games in the kitchen.  I can remember Walter Culver, always so jolly.  

I remember when Sue and Ronnie had their Water Slide and Frank and I came up to celebrate with the family.  Myrtle, Sue, and Mary had a surprise birthday party for Mr. Culver.  You could see the love Myrtle had for her family.  She was so proud of all of you.  She loved her grandchildren dearly, and I mean dearly.  I know you all loved her.

Sue, Sonny, Mary, Joyce and Bill - - She is with your daddy and is not suffering anymore.  She is in Gods hands.

Love and Prayers to all of you.

Your Mom was a very kind, gentle Lady who always had a big smile on her face. It was very evident that she loved her family - all of them - and a deep love for her Lord, Jesus.

We can Praise God that she is now with Him and her family who went home before her. She will never be forgotten.

Love all of you
Patty and Dale
