What a lovely lady she will be missed by all. We became friends thru her dentist office and had a love for flowers and crafts. When she was still able we would plant flowers out back She had a love for Day Lillies and the more colors she had the more she loved it. I still have one of her little Christmas fans she would make and give to people. Martha rest in peace you are now with your one and only!

To The Family:

My deepest sympathy for your loss of such a "Sweet and Beautiful Lady". I met Martha while working at L.T. Acosta through Hy her husband. She was such a delightful person. She and Mr. Albritton called Little Goldie. They both were truly wonderful people. She will be missed greatly.
