    Martha was a member of Holy Angels Church (now St Patrick’s) in Pooler for many years. She was loved by her congregation. She and I shared cat memorabilia even after my beloved cat, Spade, left this earth. I know she is in the beloved arms of our Savior and with Don. I will miss her dear smile.
