May the Lord comfort you as he puts His loving arms around you at this time. To her children: Losing a mother that you love is very difficult. She was there for you when you needed her and you were there for her when she needed you. That era of caring is past as she’s entered Heaven’s gates at last. May the Lord bless your hands of love and comfort your aching hearts. To Walter: I’m sure this silence is deafening after spending so many “Good” years with a wife that you loved. May the Lord comfort you in your loss after so many years of caring and sharing with Martha. I wish I could be there, but present circumstances circumstances will not allow that.

To Walter, and all the Good Family. For the short period of time I have had the pleasure to know Martha, I loved her dry sense of humour and her wry smile! She always brought a smile to my heart! She will be long remembered in your family circle, and now that this link has been broken, it will be difficult but may you have peace in knowing she left a mark on this world and those in it.

To Wanda, Paul, Marlin, & Becky.
Thanks to all very much for looking after our mother. Especially Wanda for ALL the extra work that you did for are mother. Being in Lethbridge, AB I was not able to help and be around as much as maybe I would like. For all the little things that are way to numerous to mention, that people did not see. For all the bigger things that others noticed, but all had one purpose, to help our parents. The things you sacrifice for your self and your family, to give help to our parents, I thank you.
With all these things you got valuable time, memories, etc., companionship with both parents, and had a great relationship with your mother. Even if there were many ups and downs, you can still have many cherish memories spent with our mother.
Thank you many times over for looking after our parents (MOM), and God Bless you for all the little things.
