Marty, to me, was the ultimate energizer bunny. No matter what happened to her, she just kept on going. Any major setback in her life, and a few weeks later there she was at Young at Heart and at church. Having not seen her in over 13 years she so impressed me that I always remembered her and prayed for her daily. Thanks for the light and inspiration you brought to my life and the lives of countless others who have seen Jesus in her.

Marty was a wonderful friend and neighbor. We shared a lot of laughs and long talks over the years. Although I know she is at peace with God now, I will truly miss our times together.
