Dear Mell, Mindy, and Mark,
We were saddened to learn of Marty’s passing. She was a lovely lady, who loved her family very much. She also loved her Lord Jesus, and served Him well. I will always remember her hug and encouraging words when I was having a tough time. Mell, you have a strong faith, which will serve you well in the days to come. Lean on His everlasting arms when you need strength and comfort. Will be keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
