Dear Family of Martha Sherrill,
I just saw Martha's obituary in the paper and, although I missed the services, I want to express my sympathy to you all. She was a friend of my mother, Mary Jane Humphrey, and Mom was very fond of her. After Mom could no longer drive, I would sometimes pick up Martha and Mom to go to bridge and I always enjoyed our conversations. She was a dear lady and a good friend to my mother. Sincerely, Jan Humphrey Skaer
