Martha will be missed. Her grit and positive outlook has always been inspiring. I haven't seen Martha for years, but she was my Facebook soulmate. There have been several occasions when Martha would remind me of my Grandma Katy (her Aunt) it was subtle. They were both intelligent and gullible. She had a special spirit that always put family first. She will be missed. Love you, Martha.

Martha, I miss you so much. Swimming, your kindness, So many things--your laughter, making me laugh-- even when you did not feel well. The aloe plant you gave me, is doing well in my garden. Love you, Martha.

One of my earliest memories of Martha was how she bonded with my brother and me during family events, letting us in on her "secret" that she was like Peter Pan and would never become an adult like our parents. Her lively, humorous spirit was so charming to us kids, and she would join us in putting big black olives on our fingers to make us laugh.(1/2)

Visiting Martha in recent years, I was so impressed with her beautiful garden as well as her sense of humor and political morality as expressed through social media. I really wish I could be there tomorrow to celebrate her life with the rest of our family, but am comforted by the fact that Martha is finally at peace. We love you, Martha. (2/2)

Martha, your spirit still shines brightly. Thank you for all you shared with me and with the community, thank you for your love of nature, and for all the owls! Love and blessings and light on your journey!

Martha we didn't live that far apart but somehow we never connected. We always talked about getting together and it was always easy to do it later. Rest in peace cousin.

Martha, you were always a great friend. I will always treasure our days at Dominican. My solace is knowing that you are with Him now. Prayers and hugs to your family and friends. Much love, Lisa
