    I worked with Martha many years ago at Farmer’s National Bank in Williamsburg Kentucky. I’ve been to her home several times and we became very good friends. I never knew where she was after she left Williamsburg. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. She was a special person. Willie Carr Jones

    I have known Martha for a long time. She visited my beauty shop weekly for many years. It was such a blessing to have known her and Roscoe. Martha was such a sweetheart. I will certainly miss her. Linda lee
