We are so sorry for your loss. We have many fond memories of Aunt Martha at family events, reunions, picnics, fireworks, and holidays spent together. I remember spending a week at your house during the summer as a child, too, and the many fun hours we spent playing. Aunt Martha always made me feel welcome and at home. My entire family joins me in sending you both hugs and prayers during this time of sorrow. We wish we could be there on Monday to celebrate her life. A donation has been made in her memory at the American Cancer Society. God has gained a truly blessed angel.
