We are so sorry for your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Myrtis and Billy were love by everyone at Shiloh and by everyone who new them. They brought lots of joy and laughter and were so much fun to be around. A lot of people don't know what all Billy would come to the church and do or fix because he never wanted anyone to know. But, every once in awhile you could get lucky and sneak up on him there working and have some good laughs and fellowship. They both were truly great people who loved the Lord and the church and we love and miss them too.

Jerry & Nancy & family, So sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. I have pleasant memories of both Billy & Myrtis when I used to see them at Toccoa Clinic or just see them at the grocery store. Always a pleasure to talk with them. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Nancy, I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Weldon and I thought the world of Myrtis and thoroughly enjoyed picking her up for church in the past. She was always such a delightful and sweet lady. I know where she is today because she absolutely loved the Lord! We won't be able to attend her service because we will be on vacation but you are certainly in our thoughts and prayers! Much love to you and your family!
