My condolences to the family. Martha was a fun & active senior when I knew her in the 1990's Full of personality & always offering to share what she had. I could tell of her faith because she was grounded in the love of Jesus, & His care & provision. I'm glad to have known her & be part of her life. I'm happy for her now that she's in the presence of Our Lord.
