I regret deeply to say that we said our final goodbye to my beautiful, precious, strong yet oh so gentle MaMaw, Myrtle Faye Reeves, earlier today, Tuesday June 24, 2014. And as badly as I'm going to miss her and wish so much that I could bring her back, I also realize that she's now in a much, much better and more peaceful place where she's pain free, where disease doesn't burden her, smiling and looking down on us along side her sister, my aunt Nancy. And that thought alone brings me peace & eases the pain a little more every time I think about it. I also know that heaven and the angels above are blessed to now have her in their presence until that day comes when she and I can meet again for eternity. I will miss you greatly and will always love you dearly MaMas, and hold you near and dear to my heart. I couldn't have asked or dreamed for a better grandmother nor would I ever want to.
Love Always....Your Granddaughter,

Larry and Scott. Connie and I send our sincere condolences to you and your family. Both of us having lost a parent feel your pain and sense of emptiness. Rest assured that time coupled with close family and friends will bring back normality in your lives but with a void that you should cherish. Take care and may God Bless.
