Becky, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you were the sunshine of her life. Sending prayers for you and your family. Death of a loved one is so difficult, and words seem so inadequate. I genuinely pray that the Lord gives you a sense of peace. Carrie Thompson.

My condolences to the family. Martha was a very sweet and kind person , enjoyed that from her as I visited with Larry and knew her husband also in Atlanta. She and my sister, Virginia Oliver, graduated together. We lost my sister in 1990 . I'm happy that Martha had such a long life.

I am thinking of you and your family today. I wish I could have come to the funeral, just because I love you so much and I wanted to support you. I would like to have met your Mother. She must really be something to have a daughter as sunny and true hearted as you are.
I am glad you have a strong relationship with God. It will help you through.
love you,
