Dear MJ and family, I was sorry to hear of Martha's passing. She was a lovely person. I remember her fondly from her visits to Rite Aid pharmacy. She was always wearing a smile to brighten the day. My sons Shawn and Brian who worked at Pizza Hut with you also send their sympathies. May your memories be a comfort to you in the days to come. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Memory Eternal. Denise Bell and sons Shawn and Brian

Sending our sympathy and condolences to everyone over the loss of a loving and caring woman/mother/sister/aunt/grandmother/angel. Can only imagine the reunion in heaven with Dave and Loretta and the rest of the family. I'm sure they've started playing cards. So many good memories to reflect on. I'm so thankful and feel blessed to have met her and had her in our lives. A smile and a twinkle in her eyes to remember her by. Aunts Phyllis and Mary, you're in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Find comfort knowing she is still around looking over you. Plus she's reunited with those who went to heaven before her. Hang on to your memories and to each other. She is at peace and happy. Relieved to know you were all together visiting when the Lord called for her. Take care. Thinking of you. Sending prayers for your own peace and acceptance. May all the angels smile down on you and surround you with an embrace of love and strength.
