Mark and Carla I’m so sorry for your loss. Aunt Martha was so sweet and dear to many. I won’t be able to make it Saturday, I’m just getting over being sick just can’t afford to have another round of sinus trouble. You are all in our prayers.

To all those who knew her best and loved her most, Mark, Carla, John, Angie & Wayne, and others: I hope the many happy moments, loving words, the smiles and laughter of Martha’s healthier days long out live the “long goodbye” days of the Alzheimer’s. I pray that you will find comfort in Christ our Lord, the giver of ETERNAL life and joy!
