I did not know Mrs. Martha for very long but will always remember her with great fondness. She was such a sweet lady. She seemed so gentle and intelligent and kind. I am so glad that she has children and grandchildren to make this difficult time a bit easier for her husband. Jean Adhya, CNA Southern Haven

Uncle Max, Michael, Uncle Don, And family. I remember Aunt Martha fondly, times shared at her home with my mom (Mary Young}, dad and my brother and sister's. I had shed many tears, yesterday and today thinking of you all and what you are going through. It's not easy letting go, I have been there many times with my family. I'm so sorry that distance has kept us apart. May the lord help you all heal as time goes by. I will keep you all in my prayers. Till we meet again, I love you all. My thoughts are with you today as you lay Aunt Martha to rest. I will be there in spirit's.
