More than my memories of what we did for those amazing summer weeks though, are my memories of her. She had the biggest smile, and always was laughing about something. She loved to aggravate and get us kids going, but never in a mean way. She absolutely hated her first name. And like most of the family went by her middle name. Just on Tuesday she about had a fit with the nurse on the phone who she told "you should know by now my name is not Myrtie!" She loved jewelry and Uncle Hoyt always found her the most beautiful pieces. She was such a lady with her hair done, her clothes just so, her jewelry, and nails. She was an Auburn fan and loved basketball, but went to every kinda sporting event everywhere she could. She the kindest person, who loved her family. She and Uncle Hoyt never had children of their own, but adopted all of us great-nieces and nephews as their grandkids. And later, they both would light up any time I came home and brought my own kids. Most of all I remember that smile and laugh.
