Dear Jerry and Family, Martha was the cousin I always wanted to be when I grew up!! She always passed down her very fashionable clothes to me when I was in junior high and high school! She became a nurse, so I decided to become a nurse! She advised me to get my BSN, instead of going to a hospital school, so I did—some of the best advice ever at the time!! She was the ultimate caregiver and always so cute and vibrant—loved her dimples! 😊
Coming to her service from MI is just not a great option at this time! Not being there, saddens me more than I can say!
My husband, Larry, will always remember Martha and Nora with a smile! They were real life “Golden Girls” and we loved and enjoyed them so much! Visits there with them always left us laughing!!
With sincere sympathy and much love! Sending many hugs, much love and sincere prayers to each of you! Always in our hearts, Brenda and Larry Connell
