Mom Myrtle was one of a kind; she was a devoted wife and mother. To know her was to love her.  She had a passion for family, friends, and cooking.  She loved to fish and on afternoons you could find her on the houseboat fishing with her grandkids.  She loved to cook and was the best around.  She always said the way to someone's heart was through their stomach.  Her crawfish bisque was The Best around, ask anybody.  If they had a cook-off, she was in it and was the champion of the rabbit cook-off for years, no one wanted to compete against her, so they eventually made her a judge.  She spent almost 35 years being a caregiver.  She never met a stranger she didn't know.  She considered everybody family and opened her arms and house to anybody who needed it.  You knew when she liked you and definitely knew when she didn't like you.  She had 8 kids and even though she never called them by the right name they knew better than to correct her.  The only complete sentence she knew how to make was the a few colorful words. You never left her presence hungry or almost in tears from all the laughter.  The only for sure way to guarantee she liked you was if you brought her some Miller Lites and you had better make sure they were the ponies!  She would stick them in her red and white igloo slide ice chest that had Myrtle’s meds written on the side, once she had too many her favorite thing to do was teach the younger kids how to drive, she worked the pedals while they sat on her lap steering the ole mercury!  Her house was always the place to be for family functions, we always had way too much good food and worked it off by playing ball in the backyard.  You could always find her at Red's Levee Bar having a few ponies with good friends and dancing.  Her favorite way to spend her time and money was at the casino.  She was one lucky woman!  With a heart full of love, she will be dearly missed.
