To all who held Myrt (Mom) in their thoughts and prayers through her back surgery and after, our sincerest appreciation. I am sure they were all heard and helped to guide her through this most difficult of times. I know they certainly helped us the family. As we all move forward her smile, laugh, caring and giving will be remembered always. As difficult as this is for those left behind, Myrt is now pain free and reunited with her husband, Tom, and son Neil and other family which has gone before and most importanatly her Lord and Saviour. She stayed true to her Lord until the end. We the family hope that she is remebered in whatever way she may have touched your lives.
