Jason and Carrie, my heart breaks for ya’ll. Everyone who knew your mom as a friend, relative, co worker or just an acquaintance was bless that she touch their lives in only the way she could. I know Christmas she was so sweet and kept telling me “ thank you so much for sharing your home and the Mason family with me”. I told her she was family and I hope she realized that. The missing and wanting to talk to her will always be with you so remember to do that. She will be listening. The missing never goes away we just learn to live without those we have lost. I love you and yours so much . I’m sorry I can’t be at the service but y’all ate in my heart, prayers and every thought. Hugs to everyone !!

Martha was a sweet cousin and she always had a kind word to brighten the day. She loved her children & grandchildren more than life itself. Family was always important to her. She always had a deep love for her brother & her sisters. There will be a huge void in our lives until we meet again.
