I will not be able to attend the funeral or calling hours which I am so sorry about. Martha was like one of our family and did many favors for us including bring my Mother groceries after I moved to Oneida. My sincerest sympathy goes out to Janice who I love dearly.

Hi Janice. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend your mom's calling hours or funeral, but wanted you to know how much I enjoyed talking with her when she came to the funeral home. She always made me laugh, reminded me so much of my grandmother, and I am going to miss her!
