Very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother. My mother (Margaret Kosfeld) roomed with her before she passed last July at the Pleasant Manor nursing home. Mother had a difficult time connecting with others but seemed to get along with Myrtle right away. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of your loss. May God help you through this difficult time. Know that she will have no more pain and suffering as she reunites with the ones she had known and will be waiting for you when your own journey has ended.
