Dear Emily & family,

I've been fortunate enough to be able to visit with your mom as an adult. She was fun and definitely a great addition to the town of Dummerston, and no doubt loved dearly by Lee and you "kids." I know you were close and I am truly sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with all of you.

Take good care of yourself.

Lee, my heart hurts for you. I thought Martha was in remission, so this news is a shock. I am sorry I didn't get to know her better. David also is saddened by your loss and joins me in sending condolences.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss Lee. I had no idea she was going through the fight of her life. I absolutely loved working with her and mom at the Scott Farm, they were two peas in a pod. Each loving the outdoors and gardening. Rest easy Martha, you will be missed by many!
