    I met Martha many years ago when I was dating Henry’s friend, Scott. She was always so friendly and kind. Years later I saw her at the Southpointe Clinic and ended up doing her mammogram several years in a row. Of course she remembered me and we always had a nice visit. Only just last month I ran into her and Henry. Such a pleasure to see them both! My thoughts are with the entire family during this sad time.
