    Myrtle was very special to me in my younger years. She taught me many lessons on how a lady should conduct herself. She loved her family. One thing I always will remember about Mrytle was her red lipstick and high heels. RIP sweet lady you have done your job here on earth.

    Donnie, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. When I started attending New Hope, Myrtle was the first person I connected with. Myrtle was a sweet and dear lady and will be greatly missed. Another of God’s singers has gone home, and I hope you and Susie find peace and comfort in that.

    In Christian love

    Such a wonderful and sweet lady I have known my whole life. My mother loved her too and they were always very close and left this world only 4 months apart. I hope they have a chance to reminisce on their lives together at New Hope because I know they are together now in Gods arms. The best dressed classiest woman I knew. Keep kicking your heels Ms. Myrtle!!!

    Rest in Peace,
    Debi Williams

    Myrtle was a fine Lady. She was a true Christian lady in every way. The first time I met her I thought this is the kind of Christian Lady I want to be. I hope I have not fallen short. She loved her family and loved the children of New Hope Road Church of Christ and they loved her. She set the example for all of us. She will be greatly missed. Rest now Myrtle your work is done. We will all be glad to see you again. Your sister in Christ, Carol Park
