    Dear Martha, I wish I could have visited with you one more time before you had to leave us. You had such a big heart. Tessa still has your seashell collection you gave her when she was little. Thank you for your kindness and support, you meant a lot to her. She has grown into lovely young woman, you would be so proud of her. Every time I listen to my Eva Cassidy CDs I will think of you, I know how much you loved her music. I will be seeing you. My condolences to your family.
