I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, David and family. Martha and her husband Akers were very close friends with my parents Jim and Clara Brown. Akers and my father were best friends, along with Harry Johnson and Steve Handy. Martha was a lovely woman and I always admired her long hair. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Aunt Martha was a beautiful, gracious, kind, godly woman. She always smiled and was so pleasant to be around. She was very special to Mama, Daddy and our family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you go through these difficult times. Love, Linda Ellington
