To the family of Martha – We send our deepest sympathy. As a youngster Martha came and picked strawbereries at our farm in FallLeaf for 5 cents a quart. This helped my father alot. I am currently in Arizona for the winter so will not be able to attend the services on Friday. Thinking of you all fondly. Lorene Reetz Cox
