    My condolences to Bill, Timmy and the rest of Martha’s family.
    She was a special lady. We became friends in 3rd grade. That’s 70 years of friendship! We had wonderful high school years and went our separate ways but not so far apart. I went to Nursing School and she got married.. I was an RN when Timmy was born and was her nurse. I still remember the excitement we shared.
    Over the years we didn’t live close to each other and life got in the way but we kept in touch. We just took up where we left off the last time we talked.
    I will miss her but am happy she is no longer in pain.
