Growing up, I always viewed Aunt Martha as our own Queen of England. She was always so well put together, prim and proper. She had a regal bearing about her. I feel blessed to have enjoyed many Christmas celebrations at her home. I pray that the family feels the love and prayers being sent their way. Dad shared the rock keychain with me and I thought it was absolutely beautiful as Aunt Martha was the rock of her family. God bless you all.
