There are no words that could begin to express the love and gratitude I have for Martha. She is the best Grandma my son could ever have and my friend when I had no one else! Her strength and the unwavering love for her children and grandchildren is like no other. We've shared laughter and tears together, and I wouldn't trade those times for anything! I love you Martha Always and forever!

Martha was a friend in word and deed. She would attend many of our services and activities at FBC, particularly special days. She often attended civic and community events as well. She was an excellent cook and usually flashed that bright smile, even when all was not well. She was always appreciated our prayers and concern. She will be missed. She now takes her place at the feet of Jesus, our Savior! Dr. & Sis. J
