Aunt Martha: So much could be said wonderful about her! When I was a child, she invited me to visit and play with her great kids--all girls! I remember Thanksgivings at Grandma Dukes's house on Grandin Road with all the family...such wonderful times. I even remember her last pregnancy, and the Christmas Santa at Reddman Road bringing lots of pairs of shoes and clothes to my cousins there. I miss those times. They were a blessing. Prayers to all the family whom I love.

So sorry to learn of Martha's passing. We worked together at Garinger high school for many years. She was my "side kick". Today my mind is very active remembering all the good times we had together. My thoughts and prayers are also with the family.
