    Hello all of you in the family,

    I just have to say how much I appreciated and enjoyed doing Myrt’s hair. We had so many good times laughing and giggling about tricks we played on people and life in general. She always asked what we were having for lunch in case it sounded good to her.

    I learned so much from Myrt I can’t even tell you guys! She was so wise and a true friend always willing to give advice. The joy she brought to me was incredible. I can’t imagine what she did for so many other people over the years.

    I will forever miss her, and know now that she is happy with Bud.

    My fondest memory of Myrt goes back to the early 1970’s when she would stop at our residence on the Friday Rd. in Perkins to chat with my husband Glenn while she and Bud on their way to her cabin. I had small children (5) hanging about and enjoyed the rapport she had with Glenn.

    Great lady and very knowledgeable of her Delta County!

    Myrt was a genuinely nice person and it was my privelige to know her. What a great sense of humor she had, and her memory will always bring a smile to my face.
