What a dear friend Marty was to us. Her bright smile, laughter and always positive attitude will be truly missed. I do know that she rests now in the arms of angels in the presence of the Lord, thank you Jesus for holding her family close during this time. May you all know how much we love you all and are praying for comfort for each of you. I'm truly happy to know one day I will be met by my dear friend in heaven. Until then we hold your memories dear to our hearts.

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