Aunt Myrt, So many have gone before you and are in their glory to see you once again. You have paid your dues on earth and we know that life for you in Heaven will be wonderful. You will be so missed here, but we will meet again. The loss of a loved one can take its toll on all of us, but we know time makes it alittle easier to cope with. May you rest in peace. My love to all those you have left behind especially Carmie, Bonnie, Billy, Dickie & Jeffery. Love to all, Margie, Carl and Families

Richard, Carmelita & family:
My prayers & thoughts are with you all during this sad time. The passing on of one’s Mother is extremely difficult. A Mother has a unique way of keeping us ‘grounded’. When she is gone, we feel a bit lost & disoriented.
Whenever I think of your Mom a smile rushes to my face as I recall some of Life’s precious moments that we experienced. I will always remember her, fondly.
May you all find your way back to a comforting & peaceful place as you bid your dear Mother farewell!
God bless you all & keep you under his care!
With my deepest sympathy,
+Carmen (Rivera) – Sally’s sister
To my loving Mother there is a big void in my life now that you have moved on to a better life. I know you will never suffer again. You will always and forever be in my heart. You made me the woman I am today. One day I know we will all be together again.
To My Loving Mother, You were always the glue that held my life together. You were my teacher, my comforter and my confidant. I will miss you everyday until Our Loving Lord and Savior allows me to look into your beautiful blue eyes again and tell you how much I love you. Forever, Carmie
