Memories: I have a lot of them with Martha. We go way back to Bluffton when we went to church together, had 2 of our children born close together.
Since that alone we got together a lot for them to play and since I played guitar we started a singing duo called "The Stump Sister" Myrtle and Effie.
We entertained at ladies meeting at the surrounding churches. If you needed your spirits lifted she definitely did that. She will be missed by a lot of friends
and family but she told me that she wanted to go home and as we know home is where your heart is. Heavenly Home.
