Myrtle was known as Aunt Puddin to most, Aunt Myrtle to some, but loved by all who knew her. She was on of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She dedicated her life to Jehovah in November of 1996 and served Him as best she could, even with her health declining, until she closed her eyes on October 29, 2016. Many refer to her as the lady in the wheelchair passing out bible literature. Some called her that “little bitty lady with all those kids”. But we (us 10) just called her “Mama”.
So Mama, we know your just resting now in death, but we know that death is not the finale’ of it all. Jehovah has the last say. And we wait on his say so and look forward to the resurrection that Jesus spoke of in John 5:28, 29. IT IS really so hard to say good bye to yesterday, so we will carry you in our hearts and our spirits, and not say good bye to yesterday, but remember the good times of yesterday.
