Heartfelt Sympathies

I enjoyed every moment I had with Martha. She was a wonderful mentor and friend; a great godly woman who served her LORD, her family, her church, and the Northern Neck community well. She will be missed and Michele and I will always treasure the times we had with her. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to her children, especially her son, Bliss, and Johnny. May God's mercy, peace, and comfort sustain you in the days ahead.
