I will remember Martha with great fondness. She and Richard were great friends to my parents, Edith and Paul Bostrom, who looked forward to their visits to Cape Cod in order to spend time with the Possners. Martha and Richard were very gracious to me when I visited them. They took me to the best places in Cape Cod--the swap meet and Provincetown. They were great fun...and I enjoyed watching their interactions with each other. Martha had such immense patience. I know she was lonely for her daughter...and I am sure she missed Richard these last few years. I hope her family and friends will be comforted that she had a full life.

Mrs. Possner was such a sweet lady. She sang in the choir with my mom. I sure they are both in heaven singing together again. She was a good friend of my mom and dad. She always made sure to come find me and say hello at church. She will be missed by many people. Much love to her family and friends!
