    Heaven has gained another angel Martha was one of the sweetest, most selfless people I have ever known. She loved her family to the fullest & through all that life threw at her, she championed with a smile. I will miss our nightly talks with J.L. & I, her kindness, her smile, her wisdom & our course her amazing food – but most importantly just her. Loosing her leaves a big hole on all our hearts but I find comfort in knowing she is no longer in pain & is smiling down from heaven watching her family & waiting for that eternal reunion. Martha Jean, mom, we ❤ you.
