Mark and family I was saddened to read of Myrtle's passing and wanted to send condolences to you and your family. Myrtle and I worked together at the DOT and I considered her to be one of my dearest friends. She always had a great smile and was a sweet, kind person. I know you will miss her but just remember all the great memories and they will help to sustain you in the days ahead. Linda Long Turpin
