Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of Martha. She was part of my wonderful childhood memories of the Freeport United Presbyterian Church. She was always smiling! A special thank you to her for coming to sit with my mother, Esther Atchison, while she was dying in 2008. That was such a comfort to Mother and to me.
