My family and I loved Martha Ann and Billy. She was a very important part of my childhood and I appreciate her and Billy looking out for me. It makes me sad that she's gone, but I bet her and my Dad are already catching up on all the news. Prayers for Bill and the girls and their families. I love you all and you will be in my thoughts.

So many memories with you Martha Ann, so when our kids were young we spent many, many days together. We, and our kids had so much fun together, never a dull moment. You were with me when my only daughter was born, you had so much love in you. I loved your girls like they were mine. I only wished I had spent more time with you on earth. But I know I will see you soon, but with a much larger gathering.

Loved you much Martha Ann!
