    I never had the chance to meet you, but I felt like I knew you because your mom would always talk about you! She was so proud of you! Marty was a one of kind woman and a pleasure to know! She was a bright light where ever she went! I also had the pleasure to meet your dad. What a love story your mom and dad had! They were Wonderful people! You will be in my thoughts and prayer and hope the next few days be filled with fond memories of your mom!

    Dean and I haven’t met you but we knew your parents. They were such caring people and a delight to know. Scotty was our State Farm Agent from 1956 until his retirement. We got to know your mother when she worked in the office with your dad. They were devoted to each other and were so very proud of you, Lynne. We know you were raised in a home filled with love. May fond memories comfort you at this time of loss.
