    I’m so sorry to hear of Myrt’s passing. My mother and aunt were childhood friends of Myrt’s, Arlene and Arliss Magnussen. It seems like such a short time ago that my mother, Arlene and I went back to Jackson. We stayed with Myrt for several days and did some sightseeing and also visited their childhood friends in Jackson. But it probably was 20 years ago that we visited, it just seems like yesterday!/ After my mom died in 2014 I kept in contact with Myrt for awhile, it was always so nice to talk with her and her her stories of the girls growing up in Jackson. My sister was going to call Myrt today, April 6, to see how she was doing and she found the obituary and YouTube video of Myrt’s funeral. Myrt was a wonderful lady, always enjoyed talking to her… she’ll be missed.
