Iremeber so many things about Martha. When I was litte girl,she was a playmate. Martha was there when we were at Grandpa * Granma's house.. She would be in and out checking on everyone to see if anything was needed to be done. She would always play with us. We loved to stay with her. I was about 5 year old when I heard her scream for the first time. I had a glass of red kool aid in my hands and it scared me so bad that I jumped and the red kool aid went allover Grandma's wall which was wallpaper. I learned that Martha had seen a mouse. I heard her scream many times over the years .I was Flower Girl for Mart & Bob's wedding. I remember how beautiful Martha was. I was later to understand just how beautiful she really was.
When they bought and remodeled a house, I fell in love with an upstairs bedroom and declared that it was mine. When I got to stay there, it was my room. I knew that whenever we were going to see Martha or stay with her that we were going to have fun. She was always there for all of us as we got older. She took care of Aunts and Uncles, her Mom & Dad, Brothers & Sisters, neices & nephews and a lot of other people in this town. I was older then and did finally realize that Martha was a truly beautiful person inside & out. She is the one that I called if there was a problem. When I suspected that Shelley might be diabetic, she told me exactly what to do and I did it and Shelley was diabetic. Our Dr couldn't believe that I had discovered it so quickly. Martha loved to take pictures and would climb built in cabinets to get the best pictures. She was in her 60's the last time I caught her at it. I could go on and on about all her wonderful attributes because I have only begun to remember things she did. I loved her greatly and she did influence my life for the better. I will miss her very much, but I will never forget her.
