Martha was one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met . We went to nursing school together back in 1985 . In 1990 she directed my wedding, unfortunately I lost touch with her but thought of her often . My thoughts and prayers are with her family as you go through this time of grieving especially around the holidays .
