  1. Pam,
    Again I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I’ts always hard to lose a mother, I know, I lost mine 30 yrs ago & it seems like just yesterday. But take comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain & is in a much better place than we are. Just wanted you to know that I’m thinking about & praying for you. And if you need anything, even if it’s just to talk, just give me a holler.

  2. My sincere sympathy and prayers goes out to Martha’s family during this sad time. Martha and the entire Brown family were dear childhood friends. Gone but not Hill

    I was so sorry to hear about Martha passing. I am not sure if I can get to Hazen in time for the funeral, but if I don’t I will be with you in spirit. I love you all. Your Cousin, DeAnn

    I worked with Martha at Remington and I am very sorry to hear of her passing. We became very good friends until I retired. May God bless the family and all her friends. I did not know this until about 4:00 P.M. today. I am sorry I did not know in time to come to the funeral home.
