I met Martha in the early 80's when she worked in Lake Charles; I worked in Baton Rouge & our offices attended training and meetings together, part of the New Orleans District . She was smart, a lot of fun, and totally genuine! She gave great advice, too!
You have my deepest sympathy for your loss.

Martha and I worked together for several years in Lake Charles. She was a very good tax auditor, very fair and conscientious. We made light of her terrible handwriting which was a challenge to read. She always had a smile and was fun to be around.

Sorry for your loss.

Martha and I were neighbors for many years in Lake Charles, La. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend. We did so many things together like meeting each day after work to put in our 3 miles of walking each evening, going out to eat and attending some wonderful events together over the years. I hated to see her leave and missed her so much. We kept in contact through out the years and shared all our family news.My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I know this is a sad time for you. Love, Wilma
