I miss you, Mott. You were so bright and funny. Also, I’ll always remember how talented you were. Your paintings were always the first to sell. Here I had majored in art and you had taken some lessons at a local hardware store!! You were just naturally gifted. Bless you, Mott ; I’m so glad to have known you.

Martha was my best buddy since fifth grade. We shared so many adventures, sad times, happy times, mad times and we always loved each other. I have missed her since this awful disease took her away but I am happy that she is now at peace. I love you, Mot! You are always in my Heart!!!

I will always remember the happy times that we shared while working at Allstate. Her humor kept our entire unit going. I remember once when Martha was so dedicated and would not leave work. We all looked everywhere, but couldn't find Martha. Martha had crawled underneath the desk and fell asleep. We asked her why didn't she just go home, she just laughed at us and said she had work to do. She was a fantastic friend that I'll always love and remember.
