    Martha was our neighbor when we first moved to Westwood over seven years ago. She was always welcoming and funny, with a dry wit. She was genuinely proud of her husband’s handiwork. We only knew Martha in her nineties but, in the brief time we knew her, she left us wishing we had known her longer. We will miss Martha and are saddened by her passing. We extend our heartfelt condolences to her relatives and friends.

    My thoughts go out to you, Ann and I have many memories of your mother when we went to the First Baptist Church. She was a quiet woman who was so proud and happy to be your mother. God bless you as you go through this difficult time.

    I’ll miss my phone conversations with my aunt. She was a strong lady and always asked after our family in California. We are all sad about her passing.
