The McAuley and Dumas Families,

We mourn your loss. Cousin Myrtle was a valued member of the Bruton Family. I remember her fondly as she contributed to many of our Bruton-Ewing family reunions as we were striving to remember our past, document our heritage, plan our future and, in doing so, honor and cherish all family members. She will be missed. May you find peace in knowing that God took her home. --The Bruton and York Families
