To Marty's family I offer my deepest sympathies. The world has lost a wonderful and very gracious lady. I will greatly miss her. I had the pleasure of working with her at Zale Lipshy on the Rehab floor for many years. She was the most caring person I have ever met.She always showed her compassion and understanding towards her patients and her co-workers. She always had time to listen to others. Her strong faith in Christ was always a light shining through her. She represented Him in everything she did in her life. Please take comfort in the scriptures and know that one day we will be reunited with her and Christ on that great day of resurrection. May God Bless and comfort you during this diffcult time of loss.

Dear Bloodgood Family,
I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18) He has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,

Lisa, Tom, Nick, Lauren and Family -

Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I remember Marty fondly at some of the Bloodgood events many years ago. I also remember how impressed I was when she went back to school and earned her graduate degrees. I will be thinking about all of you during the next few days.
With love, Laurie
