I worked with Martha at S&S Healthcare. She was such a joy and a wonderful person. She used to talk about Tanner quite a bit and I loved hearing her stories about her family. I know she will be missed. My sympathy to you and your family.
Marie and family,
My thoughts & prayers are with you, that the next days, weeks & months, and even years may be kind to you while you are missing your mom. What a blessing it is to have had a wonderful mother & friend all those years.
The Guffey’s sent me an e mail about your mom’s death. I have thought of her so often and with fond memories. George went once and gave your dad a Blessing when he was ill. Your mom never forgot it. She was a real sweetheart. A few months ago I had inquired about her from Sister Bang. We have been away from Ohio for over 10 years. Hadn’t seen her for a few years prior to that with our 6th Ward split. How I miss our old gang.
I know how much you will miss her. A mother’s death leaves a big hole in your heart. Please know we care and you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Our thoughts and prayers are for you and your family.
I am so sorry for your loss…You and your family are in my prayers…
So sorry, great lady. Prayers for the family, love HC
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
Marie, Mike and Tanner–We are so sorry for your loss.
Marie, Mike and Tanner–We are so sorry for your loss. It was such a joy to know Martha and see the close mother/daughter relationship you shared with her. I loved her sense of humor and her complete devotion to you and your family. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. We love you!
My heart goes out to the Gregory family. It has been a long road for all of you. My thoughts are with you on your journey toward peace.
Please accept my condolences to the family and know that we will have you in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
We loved Martha! She was always happy and called my hubby Jrz Mike. She also loved his pasta! We got together almost every holiday. I am sad to see her go but she is now out of pain and she is with Reginald. I bet they are playing in a big park somewhere!
Love Alicia & Mike
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
I grew up knowing and loving Mr. Mahlon and Mrs. Winnie, Martha Jo, Anne Ella and family.
I loved to visit teach Marie. She was a very loving person, and will be missed!
