I am so sorry to hear of Myrtles passing. She called me a few weeks ago to chat, since she hadn't been riding the bus for the last year we didn't get to visit as often. It was funny, when I got to know her, that I had babysat most of her grandchildren. She was such a sweet lady. I loved visiting with her and will dearly miss our phone calls.

Dear Trudy and Jan, I am so sorry to read of the passing away of your dear mom. She was such a lovely lady and always so nice to me when I would be in your home. I remember that she always seemed to have a big smile and enjoying her day - even the nights of your slumber parties! And, as luck would have it, your mom and my mom became good friends - cards and coffee chats. I'm sure there are many wonderful friends ready to welcome her. Blessings to you both as you continue to share your treasured memories of your mom with your family. My sincere sympathy, Jean Ann Murphy Colon
