    I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I will remember fondly my days with Martha at Planning & Budget! She was a great teammate! Jerry, I wish you strength as you and your family move forward! It was always a hoot playing the basketball pool with you two fun loving characters, even in retirement! Rest in peace, Martha!

  3. So sorry to hear of Martha’s passing. She was a great neighbor and friend. Prayers for Stephanie, Jerry and her beloved grandson, Carter

  4. I am very deeply sorry for your loss. I have known Miss Martha for almost five years. She was sweet, kind and full of life. I will miss her. She had a big heart, great stories and even better hugs. Every time she would come in we would all give her a hug, she knew how to make us feel special. I hope her family finds comfort and peace. We all loved her. Thank you for always being good to us.
    I will be thinking of you miss Martha and your family. Rest in peace.
    Your dillards friend, Natalie. 🖤

  5. Jerry and Stephanie, I am so sorry for your loss. Martha and I go back a long way. We worked together at DPB for a long time and we were more than just co- workers. She could be a tough cookie when she needed to be, but what I remember most was her dedication to her job and the enjoyment she shared with friends. I remember her smile, especially when she spoke of the two of you, but her smile was broader when she talked about Carter. I am not good at words during a time of sadness, but I can tell you she adored the three of you. My prayers are with you for strength during this stressful time. May Martha be at peace and her memories stay warm in your heart.
