We worked with Myrle at GMC Truck for several years. She was a good friend to all she knew. Myrle was always good at keeping in touch with her friends, and her door was always open. She will be greatly missed by all the lives she touched. Fred & Linda Smith, January 3, 2009 In loving memory of my special friend Red. I will really miss all the funny cards and stickers she put on all of them! She was truly one of a kind and we had so many wonderful talks on the phone as well as personal letters. I will miss her dearly but will see her again one day and I am sure she will have a lot to tell me. She was a true friend to the very end. So long for now my Redheaded friend. I will cherrish all the good times we shared till I see you again. I love you. Darlene Pryor 523 ACR322 Frankston, Tx. 75763 Darlene Pryor, January 2, 2009
