Although I didn’t meet this sweet lady until her 90th surprise birthday party, she truly gives the saying, “to know her is to love her” meaning.
EVERYONE who met her loved her. We would hear “we love Miss Martha” every time we went to dinner with her, walked her down the hall, or out for a quick visit or trip somewhere. She really was loved and cherished by so many. A heart of gold is Martha. -and that is not always the norm for someone her age!
Although she will be missed daily, and remembered always, I am so very happy she is in the presence of Jesus!! And cheering the Rangers in from heaven!! 💕

So many memories flowing. Growing up with Heather and living on the same street as her grandparents had me down at their house all the time. I'm so thankful for the love and support they gave Heather and all the help they provided in raising their grandkids. She was an incredible woman with so much love for everyone. I'm so glad I got to have her in my life as a part of my childhood. My thoughts and prayers for the entire family and friends who will miss her.

Before meeting her I believed that I was the only person in the whole world who was born on June 18th. My child mind was blown away when I learned someone else was born the same day. I'll always remember her as my first birthday mate. And as the person who helped mold my best friend/sister into the amazing woman she is today.
