A wonderful mother and friend. A real trooper. Followed me for 20 years around the county as I served in the United States Airforce. Martha was instrumental to my success in the military. She had five military assignments with me, two in Virgina, one in Georgia, one in New Mexico, and one is Massachusetts. With out her love, support and friendship I would never had made the rank of Colonel. She was my Mom, best friend, and buddy. I miss her everyday. She is always in my heart.
