Condolence from Laura Latta on January 30th, 2009 12:00 am

Myrtle was a joy to be around. Her spirit on life was very real. She loved to shop at Hammricks, where I would take her and my mother in law, Jo LattaNanny Jo to find as many deals as they could. Only to return some of them. Myrtle was such a lady I know her family will miss her a great deal. I will miss Myrtle and the times being with her and seeing her enjoy life.
