Saying good bye will never get easier but knowing that you got 101 years filled with love, adventure and family here on Earth makes today a little easier. I cannot thank you enough for the countless things that you taught me. See you soon, and say hi to granny for me.

I spent lots of time at Martha’s growing up. Her kitchen always smelled so good. She spent time helping with Luther League activities, made sure Elsie and I had a ride to the away football and basketball games. I loved staying out at the farm. She was there for every step of growing up. She hosted my wedding shower. I will miss stopping to visit on my way to Wyoming to visit my family. Rest In Peace dear aunt. May perpetual light shine upon you.
