    Todd, Marnie Darci, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was an awesome person. She was always extremely nice to me and I enjoyed her company every time I saw her. It’s hard to let them go, but when it’s time it is time. I love you.

    My deepest sympathy thoughts and prayers goes out to the entire family as you celebrate Martha’s life. Martha and Dad over the years while he was alive used to race to see who could call each other to wish each other a happy birthday June 30th has never been the same. They always joked about having grown up at Calvary you know I met this church from the time they were kids together and always wishing each other a happy birthday from the time they were kids. As being does caregiver one particular year at 6:30 a.m. Martha called Dad first words out of her mouth were Happy Birthday Irv then I handed the phone to Dad and she said it again LOL..
