So many happy memories - I could write pages of all the wonderful times and ordinary times and even some hard times that Martha was a part of in my life. She was my sister-in-Miami when I was far from home and I will always be thankful to have known and loved her.

There are so many good memories in the over 30 years of knowing Martha. She and Janet always colluded to create fun and interesting memories for Ruth, Brian, and David. Travis was included when he came up for the summers. The trip to Toronto had enough memories to fill a book. Martha and I had fun sharing these memories in the last few years.
