Lisa, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. When I saw your mom's picture on this webpage, right next to my mother's picture (lost her on Mother's Day), I just had to reach out. I have lots of fond memories of our childhood - playing with your guinea pigs, frantically searching for them throughout your house when they got loose, swinging on the swingset in your back yard, eating ice cream on your front porch in our PJ's before our Sunday evening Disney show. I think I must have practically lived at your house half the time, and your mother was always so kind and welcoming. My heart breaks for you and your family. May her smile and love last in your memory and hearts forever. Diana Contento Dillinger

We send sincere condolences to Martha's family and prayers for comfort and strength in the days ahead. There are good memories of Bohlayer cousins and special family gatherings in times past that include Martha and Marilyn and so many others. We are thankful for our family heritage and good memories and know that you will also have those to bring comfort.
With sympathy, Janet and Dale Mattocks
