“My sincere sympathy to Joe and Dick and family, I got the pleasure getting to know your Mom through my daughter Amy and Scot Honken. She was such a wonderful lady and I sure did enjoy visiting her every time I went to stay with Amy and she always remembered me every time I went to see her. She sure had a good long life and now surrounded with the angels in heaven. Sincerely, Linda Stolfus”

“Joe, Dick and sincere sympathy to you all. Although Myrtle celebrated many years here on this earth, she will be missed. She was part Mom, Aunt, Sister, Friend and Grandmother to Scott and myself. Her kindness, warmth, love, hugs, encouragement and sense of humor will always remain with me. I imagine Dale is thrilled to have Myrtle at his side, once again. I send you my love, thoughts and prayers...Amy.”
