I find myself missing you all the time Marta. There have been so many "I wish you were here" moments... you would've known just what to say or do. We sometimes had our differences in opinion but you were loved deeply by all of us. You will have a very special place in my heart forever.

I had several psychology courses with Marta. A wonderful professor whom I will always remember. Her classes were very interesting and enjoyable. Her grading system was very fair, and if you studied, completed your assignments, and participated, you knew you would get an A. R.I.P. Marta. - Glenn Caldwell, Elementary Teacher

Marta we miss you so very much. You will be pleased to know that a wonderful teacher, Jamie Foor, has assumed some of your duties at Clearfield. He will uphold that caring, skillful tradition that you established. We think of you often and miss your wise counsel and gentle touch.

Its been over a year now that you have been gone...Many things have happened in that short amount of time, things that I know you were a part of, even if we couldn't see you. Milestone birthdays, amazing gifts, even the birth of a child, you were there in our hearts for all of it. We miss you dearly and think of you often.
