Martha is remembered by me as a young girl who needed an Easter dress and her Daddy was off sick . My Daddy worked with Mr Bennett. Daddy got his check and we met them with it . That was my first meeting with a life long friend . I have hated we couldn’t be there for y’all . We were there when her Daddy died, Mother and brother . She will be missed . She was always asking me do you remember what you were doing on this day ? X amount of years ago . A wonderful memory and I will never forget her . Prayers for all .

Rory and I love this family so very much! We have so many memories with Earl & Martha and we are truly going to miss her calls and text and her presence at all of our family gatherings. The Bible, God’s holy word , tells us ..to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I am so grateful that she is now made whole and is in glory with our Lord & Savior. Until we meet again... I love you Martha as does Rory.
