I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories, especially as a mother. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. My prayers are with the family during these difficult times. I remember the stories Martha told about her Mom. Working with Martha at Partlow was a joy. Smile on Martha, you will be missed.

Sending you thoughts of peace and courage, the same courage Martha shared. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Sending Love, Catherine Williams
