Wayne, Ken, Lu and Connie, I'm so sorry for the loss of you're dear Mother. What a wonderful woman she was, too a great many people, your loss, is a big loss for the whole Lamar & Jasper communities. We are thankful, that Mrs. Marti is no longer in pain, and as a believer in our Lord Jesus Christ, now walks hand in hand with Jesus, in the heavenly Kingdom, and there isn't anything on God's great earth, better than that. And even in death, Mrs. Marti is still evangelizing for lost souls, with her message, that "God loves you", what a wonderful way to remember your dear Mom. I want too give this blessing on the Marti, and extended families, in honor of Mrs. Marti; its the same blessing that our Almighty God bestowed on the Israelites, as they wandered in the wilderness. Numbers 6:24-26, "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace".
