Ron and Angela, my most sincere condolences for your loss. Frankly, my dear sister-in law's passing creates quite a void in our lives. Since meeting her for the first time in California in 1976, she, as you Ron became instant family. As I look back on our lives and residences in many places, be it the two stays in California, Oregon, Lincoln, Minneapolis and the DC area, I know we interacted personally more with you Ron and Martha than any of our other relatives. Geographical distance never mattered. You were there for confirmations and graduations and school concerts and numerous other occasions. Angela, Martha may have been your mother but to this day our girls still refer to her as "mama".....that's how close they were to her. She was taken from us way too soon but clearly, she touched the lives of so many. If at the end of my journey some folks can say of me that in some way I positively affected their lives the way that Martha affected others, I would consider that a life well-lived. Rest in Peace my dear sister-in-law.

Such a fitting tribute to Martha, a beautiful person, a beautiful soul. She was always so warm, caring, and friendly. You never met her for the first time because it was always as if you had known her forever. I feel very fortunate that my life intertwined with hers as sister-in-laws. Ron, I am so glad that you found someone as wonderful as Martha and I know how much she will be missed. Angela, you are so like your mother and I know how proud she was of you. My heart goes out to you both. To you and Martha's family and friends, may you find comfort in the lasting memories of a wonderful person.

Dear Ron and Angela, During this time there will be hugs there will be tears there will be people who don’t know what to say— and some who can still make you laugh There will be pictures and keepsakes memories, and storiesyou’ve never heard. And some you could never hear enouugh— there will be sorrow, there will be celebration, But most of all, there will be love the kind that will never ends— with sympathy and caring love you Cuz—Rose carolyn

To My Beloved Martha whom I love beyond words. Even though we hadn’t seen one another during these past years, I know she loved me and her family beyond measure. I remember how sweet she was to me while growing up and her incredible smile and infectious laugh. I thank God for allowing me to have her as a cousin and sister. To Angie, Ron, Marilyn, Gladys, Kim and Darryl, I am praying for you and love you all so very much. May God’s Love reign on you during this difficult time. Your loving Sister-Cousin, Elva Rae
