Aunt Myrl

I attended the funeral of my Aunt Myrl a few days ago and have had it on my mind since. It was a beautiful service with all her children speaking.  They all gave wonderful tributes about their mom. She truly was an amazing woman. One of her children in giving tribute said that the Boy Scout Law described my Aunt.  A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.  She also lived the Scout Motto: Be Prepared and The Scout Slogan: Do a good turn daily!   What beautiful words to describe a mother. She had all those wonderful qualities and more.   What a wonderful example she was to all of us.  She will be greatly missed.


  1. I am sorry for the loss of your beautiful Aunt Myrl ! I know that you and yours are upholding the "Boy scout Law" Hugs to you Laurel, this is a wonderful tribute to your Aunt, her loving children, and blessed family... Love, T*
