Martha will return in paradise with her beautiful talent to the joy of all. What a special gift of music with a heart to share. Isaiah 26:19 Christ’s heavenly Kingdom government will restore the earth to the paradise condition originally intended. Isaiah 9:6,7 We have eternity in our heart. Nothing can keep us from Jehovah’s love, not even death. Romans 8:38, 39 Martha is remembered by Almighty God and she will return. Jesus will call and Martha will answer. Job 14:14 May we remain confident that soon there will be no more sickness, pain, or death. Rev 21:3,4 Only the meek or righteous will inherit the earth and live here in peace. Psalms 36:10,11,29. Please be comforted. “Enjoy Life Forever” Christian Love and Prayers, Sandy wirfs

Aunt Martha was always so stylish and took excellent care of herself. She was very sweet to me and always wanted to know that everybody was doing well. I recently wished her a Happy Birthday” and she responded “Getting old is the pitts, but that’s life.”Now she is at peace with Jesus and that makes me happy for her. My condolences to Kenny, Mark and Richard.

Kenneth, Mark, Richard and family, I enjoyed the time I spent with Aunt Martha, whether it was playing games and lunch, a chat on the phone, long years ago we went to Florida a few times together. I visited her house in S.C. when I was a child, her apartment on Bonaventure, and then her apartment at The Summitt. She's a beautiful lady, strong, talented, and loving. I will miss her. May the Peace and assurance of her new address "Heaven" bring you comfort. I am riding home from Florida today just getting off cruise. I love you handsome fellas. Martha spoke highly of all three of you and how well you treated her, including your spouses.
