    Dear Leeke Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Ms. Martha’s death. She was a wonderful lady and a dear friend of our family for many decades. Mom and Dad thought so much of her and truly appreciated her friendship and visits until their deaths. I too have many fond memories of Mr. H.T. and Ms. Martha from the couples Rook Club gatherings to the ladies Bridge Club with Mom. Martha has a special place in Heaven and has now joined Mr. H.T. in eternal rest.
