Deanne and Andy
Knew Mrs. Martha only from the time we were in high school together.
As most Moms of that time she took care of you guys. I knew you
two were taught by a got Mom and Dad because of the out going
personality you guys had, and the way you both handled yourself

God liked what she was doing and left her on Earth much longer than people born in
the period she was.

Now seeing a picture from here younger days, Deanne I see where your
beauty came from.

Andy I'll always remember the over night fishing trip you, I and Mr. Simmons
made to Dale Hollow.

Was a good time for us to grow up and honor our parents.

Mom lived to be 4 months shy of 97.

You two lost a great Mother and Heaven gained a wonder Person.
May God bless and keep each of close.

Dear Family,  Over 50 years ago I worked with Martha at the ASCS office.  I was just a young girl preparing to go away to college.  I have never forgotten what a sweet, smiling, loving person that Martha was and I am so fortunate to have known her.  I am sorry for your loss.
