My condolences being sent to David and Dorla Harman. I knew Martha since I was 15 years old, back in 1969. She was a gem and we loved her. I live in Ohio and wrote her letters over this period of time. She loved her cats and dogs. She welcomed anyone into her home and usually stirred up some sort of biscuits and gravy. I enjoyed playing her player organ and then playing hymns on the organ as well. Martha loved her Church at South Fulton and told me many many stories of her life. I hold cherished memories of her and I enjoyed driving out to Illinois 3 years ago to visit with her at Elms Nursing. May her spirit rest in peace.

David and Dorla, Donna Nelson, I am very sorry for your loss of Martha. I remember going to her house a few times with you, and playing with Eleanor. I know these are some difficult days for you and pray God will comfort you and give you strength. Patty Henness
