  1. Martha really was one of the sweetest ladies I know. She’s give you her last dollar and do without. She was a great mother-in-law to my sister and a special part of our family. I believe that she was right with the Lord and ready to see her loved ones again. For those of you who will miss her, may God help you through the hard time.
