A Tribute to Maybin- Written by Danny Montez, Maybin’s grandson
Maybin Evelyn Meyers was a beautiful human being, and an angel on Earth, always full of life and love. With so much happiness and joy inside her, it would radiate from her sparkling blue eyes. Asking Maybin how she was doing, always led to the same response: “I’m so good, you wouldn’t believe it!” no matter what she was going through in her life. Then she would bless us with that contagious million-dollar smile, that would lighten the darkest sky. Maybin enjoyed baking and cooking for everyone, even if she didn’t know you, another example of the pure, whole-hearted woman she was. She would happily give a bare-footed stranger her shoes to end their suffering, simply the sweetest, kindest person in the world. Maybin was a great listener, someone we could share our trials and tribulations with, without judgement. We could always depend on her honesty to aid us in the right direction as well. If we all could be a sliver of the person she was, this world would be a better place. Maybin Evelyn Meyers taught us to accept each other for who we are, to smile though you may be hurt, and to be strong even when you feel so weak, but most importantly, Maybin taught us to love our life and to love all those who are in it.
A true angel on Earth and now a beautiful angel in heaven.
