I hated to hear of Martha's passing. We was a member here at Curves for a while and we enjoyed seeing her progress as she was able to move more freely from machine to machine.
She was very excited about the trip she made to visit her family that she hadn't seen in a while. She was thrilled to see that she was able to make the drive alone.
I am so sorry for your loss.
