Cindy, Marti, Kelly, and Scott,
I am so sorry about your Mom and sister. The picture brings back many memories. She was a wonderful lady and I will always remember her fondly. Some great times together in Round Lake with her and that joker of a Dad. I have been praying for her and all of you in recent weeks. I will see you on Thursday.
Love to all.

Dear Mrs. Martin,

May you Rest In Peace. You are truly one of my favorite people in this world. When you worked at Shenendehowa HS you always made sure you had your beautiful smile, sweet voice and true concern for us. I loved going to your home and will never forget how welcomed you made us girls feel. You will be missed. I know God has bigger plans for you now. Rest sweet Angel and please know how many lives you impacted with your beautiful smile and kind words.
