I meet Ms. Martha over two years ago working as her grandson, Andrew, support coordinator. She was surely a woman of faith, she was very pleasant, loving, kind, understanding and she was strong. I had the opportunity to pray with her. I truly loved her and the rest of the family, Andrew and Sharrell. We know that as much as it pains the hearts of her families and those that knew her, God doesn't make a mistake. She will be deeply missed. My condolences to the family.

You always said if I needed anything to let you know! I never doubted this to be true! When I was out in the yard you always stopped!
I thank you for your love etc to Mama and Daddy! One day soon I’ll look you up and tell you in person.
Even though I don’t live in Florida any more you’ll always have a place in my heart!
