Martha was in my graduating class of ’81. She was as real as they get. Not a pretentious bone in her body. You never had to guess what she was thinking! Looking forward to seeing her again. (John 5:28,29) Martha will definitely be will missed!

Sorry for the passing of Martha. I remember her very well coming into the Dragon Mart when she lived in Cameron. Martha didn’t know a stranger! Rest easy Martha.

Martha touched so many people in so many ways with her infectious smile and quick wit. Always willing to lend a hand or an ear, if you just needed someone to listen. Heaven has gained a special angel . I’m sure she’s already putting her organization skills to work and sitting on a creek bank fishing in her spare time. Rest in peace, my friend.
