I worked with Martha at a bank in Carrollton in the late 70's. After just recently moving to the area, I was not familiar with the surroundings. Martha was always so kind to me and such a pleasant person to work with, always offering her help and guidance. May she rest in peace. Donna Felderhoff, Prosper, TX

Martha was one of my dearest friends for so many years, going back to junior high school in Abilene. Always sweet and happy. We had so much fun. Her sweet mother Inez was a very special lady, and I loved her, too. I will miss you, dearest Martha. Mary Jo Crowder (Flint, TX)

Martha will forever be in my memory as a loving, helpful friend. I will always cherish the times we spent together at McDonalds and our conversation times almost everyday on the phone. I'll truly miss Martha in the days to come.
