Mr. Russell, my heart is saddened to hear about Mrs. Martha's passing. I remember her as a lovely lady who cherished you and her children. I always enjoyed doing her hair; she was one delightful customer and friend. Please be assured of our prayers for you and your family in the days to come. We know your faith in our Savior will sustain you. How wonderful to know Mrs. Martha is with Him, and we will see her again!

Sandra,I am so sorry about your mother. She was a great lady and I always enjoyed being around her when we were teenagers. I lost my mother in August of this year so I know how you feel. It's been a great comfort to know that she now walks with God. I hope you can find comfort in that also. Love, Emily Marchman

Sandra, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I too lost my own mother almost three years ago. I know that nothing I write can take away the pain. Just know that you are in my thoughts during this time. The wonderful people at McCommons will be of great help to you. My grandmother, grandfather, and mother all had services through them...such a small town, but what a wonderful place for your mother to have spent her life. Let me know if you need anything.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. I have really great memories of spending time at Susan's house and her being at my house as we grew up. The funniest memory is Miss Martha asking me if I wanted to take some eggs home. I quickly explained we only liked the ones from the grocery store. Again my prayers are with each of you.
