    Dear Wes & Family,

    You are in my thoughts and prayers, and I I wish peace and comfort to you during this difficult time. I feel fortunate to have met Martha and share time together with her and your family. She was a joy, very smart and funny. These traits can also be found in you and other relatives I have met over the years. She lives on in you.

    With kindest regards and my love,
    Cindy Block

    My Prayers Extended to You ( Wes ) and your Family. I remember meeting your Mom when we first became friends in 2007. She was such a nice lady and then getting to see
    her several times down through the years. Such a kind and wonderful lady. Heaven had gained yet another Angel. May God provide you Strength and Comfort during this Time.

      Thanks Vicki! Even when out in a wheelchair, she loved to shop! She would tire me out with her desire to keep shopping.... :)
