I met Marty when my family lived across the street from her parents in Mesquite many years ago. She was a ray of sunlight – always happy and loving. She was a wonderful daughter who took such good care of her parents. I am thankful that I knew her and I know she has left a wonderful lacey in her daughters and grandchildren. Jim, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
