    I’ll alway remember Martha as the true light that she was, and remember the hospitality of E.C. and her who opened their home to myself, and her other friends (which she had many).
    She will be missed by more than most would ever imagine. She touched many lives, always for the better. I now have a star looking over me, looking over us all.
