From Newt Learned...

Marty, I miss you. I love you. You were a confidant when I needed one. You are so special to me. Thanks for the ice cream! And thanks for your unconditional love.

From Bob Learned...

Monday’s 7pm: Marty called her brother Al, my father, week end and week out for years so that they could chat a brief moment and speak their love to each other. She was so punctual that if she had not called by 7:05 dad would panic and call her. Having both grown up in the days of hard money and expensive long distance calls they always managed to say what needed to be said and be off the phone within just a few minutes. She was a great support to me when he passed away. Ever thoughtful, ever loving – she cared and it showed. Our love and prayers continue for her.

From Ron Platt JR...

Marty was a wonderful lady that will be missed. She was always smiling and made those around her smile. God rest you Miss Marty.

From Marge Waller...

Marty was a remarkable lady, I worked with her and I do not think I ever talked to her that she did not have a smile on her face and a good thing to say… She was doing what she loved to do work and be around people she loved and that loved her she will be missed… but I am sure those at AP will know she may have left but her spirit will always be there.
She is one I will never forget.

From Allison...

I was very lucky to know Marty. She went to school with my Grandma and that made our friendship even more special.

Marty was like family and will always be very special to me.
