Myra and family: Not sure you will remember me from our school-age years (we attend Bethel UMC), but wanted you to know that I am thinking of you and praying for you and your family during your loss. I would love to reconnect sometime and talk over old memories. My own mother (Mary Dee Witty/Carter) is presently in nursing home here in Glasgow recovering from injuries received in a fall in our home.

We have you in our prayers.

An old friend,

Myra, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom passing away. She was a beautiful lady and I know you will miss her.
I can still remember the Birthday parties she use to have for you there in Big Clifty. Your Dad married me and my husband there in that house also
Take care and know I am thinking of you.

I will always remember Sister Perkins as one of my Mom's best friends.(Mona Rhe Pawley), but most of all I will remember her standing in the doorway of the Big Clifty parsonage, as Br. Perkins married me and Ray, on Mar 2, 1956. She started our UMW at Smith Chapel where I am a member. God Bless all of you.
