Good memories of Martha.  She was always good for a snappy comment.  Sad that she is gone.

Martha.  'Tis impossible for me to say anything approaching the way I feel in my heart and mind.  We were so close, absolutely so close in childhood.  Living next door to each other, 511 and 509.  Your mother taking care of me in my illnesses.  Your great and crazy grandmother, Ms Botkin.  Even when you moved away, we continued to remain close on through school and our young adulthoods.  You are loved and missed, Sweetie.  And to me and my brothers, you will always be Mary Dee's Movie Star.  Love.  Peace.  Aloha.  Jerry.

So sorry to hear about Martha's passing.  I have many fond memories of her at JTHS.  My father, RL Falkner, took many pictures of her in parades, football games, etc., and I was proud to develop those photos in his lab.  A beautiful girl, both inside and out.

I look forward to seeing you again when we have our "big reunion"..........Jerry Falkner

One of my "best" loyal friends during our highschool years. And if her car could TALK, our Broadway Drives, tryin catch those boys. Martha, Malinda, Lynn P.,Janis Kinsey, doesn't get any "better" than our group.
After Graduation, we attended Tyler Commercial College together; her Mom taught English, I believe. Wonderful lady.
Memories, precious memories.... Madeline
