  1. Sending sympathy to Tex for the passing of Martha. The past year has been hard for both of you. Remember you have friends that can help and listen.

  2. i was so very sorry to hear about Martha passing away. She was a great person and friend. With deepest sympathy.

  3. If my grandmother loved you, you knew it. She loved hard; she loved fiercely, and she loved without reservation. Everyone should be so lucky to have the power of that kind of love as a legacy in their life. I love you forever, grandma!
