I appreciate a family member''''s call to let me know of her passing.I shared this with her previous co-workers and everyone who knew her were saddened and expressed condolences.She worked in my unit and I found her to be a dedicated advocate.She was always pleasant and easy to be around.You, the family and friends, have my deepest sympathy.We must believe she is in a better place. I wish you God''''s blessings and hope the pain is eased.

Martha was a special friend.I will miss her stories about all the places she had lived and traveled.I enjoyed her insight on life, often revealed thru discussion of books we read and her always delicious contributions to our Sunday suppers at church.As a social worker, she made serving the disadvantaged her life's work.She was their advocate and protector.She loved her family dearly.Her grandson, Robert, and their times spent together (especially camping) were always favorite topics of conversation.

Martha was a dear friend and I am certainly going to miss her.I enjoyed spending time with her at church and in book club. I enjoyed her dry, quick sense of humor!Her choices and preferences were always different than my own and that always made things fun!Whether picking the next book for our club to read or bringing a dish to share at a meal, I loved it that Martha was going to introduce me to something new.
