    My deepest sympathies to Martha's family. She was a sweet lady. She was so joyful to have her boys. She was a strong, stoic example of strength in the face of difficulty. May your memories be a mix of all that Martha was.

    Dearest M.J., I will miss your humor, wit, and grace. I know you are at peace now. Your loss is felt deeply here on earth, but your soul is filling the great beyond.

    Martha, my entire family will miss you. You were the strongest person I've ever met. You were an inspiration. Your devotion to your boys and your love for them was always so easy to see. You taught them so much in the time you had with them. You also were always so willing to teach and work with all the other little kiddos who gathered around you each Sunday. No matter how rotten you may have felt, you always were so kind to the kids. You touched the lives of so many. Words here cannot express the deep sorrow I feel for your boys and Ross having to lose you now and for you - having to go. But I do know that you are in a better place and that you are no longer suffering and in pain. I will always think of you when I see your boys and I plan to see them often.

    Your strength and courage amaze me. While I wish
    your time on earth had been longer, I know that the
    world is better for you having been in it. I know that
    you're at rest now after fighting for so long, and I pray
    that your little men will find comfort in the memory of
    so wonderful a mother. You will always be missed.

    Martha, you were and are an inspiration to me. Your wisdom, humor, incredible mothering, and your wry perspective on the beauty and richness of life - all of these things remain with me. I miss you and I look for you in the places we used to talk. You meant more to me and to our friends than you could have known, even as much as we told you. As I told you, over and over, I am sending you love and light.

    You have been a wonderful and entertaining friend who has taught me so much about life's priorities. I am so sorry that you didn't have more time with your precious priorities, your sons. I always wished that for you, and you fought so hard for it. May your love for them stay with them and the rest of your family during this very difficult time. I will miss you dearly.

    Martha, you have such an amazing spirit. I use the present tense because I know your spirit lives on. You will forever watch over those beautiful little boys. I am so incredibly saddened that they had to lose such an incredible mama while they are still so little. I have spent a lot of extra time holding my babies and thinking of you all these past weeks. I will never forget your strength, your will, your wicked humor, the ways your eyes shined bright when you laughed, the tenor of your voice. I am so incredibly grateful that I was blessed with the privilege of knowing you. I will keep you in my heart, always!

    You touched many lives in your short time on this earth, one of which was mine. Thank you for enriching my life with your courage, strength and grace in both times of prosperity and adversity. My sorrow at your loss is tempered with the knowledge that you are finally without pain and that your spirit will be kept alive through the memories of all who cared for you.

    I will keep your family and especially your lovely little men in my thoughts.

    Martha, you have an amazing spirit and I know it lives on. No matter how bad you were feeling you always had a kind word for others. Your wicked sharp humor always made me laugh. Your strength amazed me and your battle to stick around for your boys was incredible. I am just heartbroken that those sweet little men had to lose such an incredible mama when they are so young. I know that your family will watch over them as you will. We all loved you so much but you will live on in those stupendous little boys you loved so much! I will never forget your courage, your strength, your will, your hope. I will never forget your friendship. I thank God that I was allowed the privilege of knowing you.

    ever had the pleasure to know. Loving, intelligent,
    funny, empathetic, generous, and as strong as they

    forget you. My heart goes out to your two beautiful
    boys. May your spirit live on in them.
