  1. To all the Martin Gang! Please know that I am truly heartbroken for all of you! I know how hard this has to be ! When we were younger, we all spent a lot of time at each other’s houses. Never a dull moment that is for sure.
    I know life wasn’t always easy and it didn’t seem like any of us had much, but we were rich in many ways. Rich in family, rich with love, and rich with wonderful memories! Not all the best, but those life memories that made you all the special family that you are!
    I love you so much! Always and Forever!
    “I carry your heart with me, I carry it in my heart. I am never without it, anywhere I go you go, my dear!”

  2. To all eight of my darlings and to your children and grandchildren. I love you all dearly, and would like to tell you how sorry I am that you lost your Daddy. The pain has not had time to lessen, from the passing of your Momma. If I could hold each one of you, in my arms, and take away your hurting, I would do it in a minute.
