My husband and I, Joyce and Bill Brown, feel very fortunate to have met this remarkable woman. We wish to express our condolences and prayers to Grandma Martin’s family. You were very fortunate to have such a caring and loving person in your lives. Her service and your remembrances of her were very touching. And I can tell she will be missed a lot. We hope her generosity and giving ways will be an example to others.
