I'm at a loss for words. Martha was a special woman. I can remember all the times we play in the backyard and she'd come get us for lunch. Schirtzinger Rd was a special place with special people and Martha was one of them. My life is filled with memories of Martha and all of us playing at your house. I'm sorry I can't get up there but she will be in my thoughts and prayers. All of you will be in my thoughts and prayers. She was a special lady.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Martha was such a key person in my childhood. It's because of her and rest of the family's on shirtzinger Rd that I turned out the way I am. Martha was a special lady and her passing will be felt by many. It brought tears to my eyes when I read she had passed. One more shining light has left the world. I'll keep her in my thoughts and prayers until we all meet up again on the other side. I love all you guys, I'm sorry I can't be up there. I would if I could, you all have a special place in my heart .
