I offer my most sincere sorrow to all of you. What a hole in our hearts she has left. I fondly remember her as being such a lady in her gentle manner and soft voice. Never an ill word about anyone. Mother (Virginia) most cherished the time Martha spent at her home in Lexington. They would stay up late reliving childhood memories and laugh for hours. May God grant you peace, you are in our prayers.
