Martha was a special lady and a terrific neighbor. I watched as she weathered many health challenges over the years and I was inspired by her positive attitude and tenacity to remain independent for as long as possible. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. May you experience in the midst of your sorrow and grief God's presence and love for you.
