    Sorry about Martha, my mother Stella Curts and her were very good friends enjoyed their bingo time together and sitting outside and watching people play golf. I always made sure I had time for her and tried to visit with her when I could, god bless the family at this time.

    Aunt Martha will be greatly missed, she is a wonderful woman who provided a lot of life direction while visiting the Ray family during the summer when I was young. My favorite memory is the cinnamon toast she always had available for breakfast. I love you Aunt Martha, see you in Heaven!

    Martha, you were a wonderful lady. I first met you when Marilyn and I went to school together. We lived down on West Kyger St. across from Jules Simon. I loved stopping to talk to you out on your porch. You were always so niceand just a really precious woman. I remember the day you accepted CHRIST JESUS as your saviour. You and another lady were setting on your front porch and my church,The Frankfort Baptist Temple, was out soul winning. Ruth Christianson came up to your porch and asked you and your friend if you were 100% if you died that day that you would go to heaven and you both said no. You received CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR RIGHT THEN. Oh I was setting in the car waiting and I was so so happy because I knew you were on your way to heaven for sure. I will see you again someday sweet lady. love you, Joyce Hensley Phillips

    Martha was a very wonderful person and anyone who knew her loved her. The world will be mourning her loss but heaven is rejoicing because they have a new angel. Now that Martha has her wings she will be the best guardian angel ever for her kids and grandkids.
