    Martha was a beautiful soul who helped very many people, including myself. She was a dear friend and will be terribly missed by so many. I loved her very much. I really don’t know if I would be here today if it weren’t for her.

    Martha let me stay in a room she had, after I had been in an accident. We spent a lot of time together at that time. She loved to laugh and I loved to hear her laugh. She was a wonderful lady.
