I am so sorry to hear of Martha's death. I was a classmate of hers at St.John's, and though we've not been in touch recently, I have often thought of her over the years. She was one of the deeply kind smart people, and I've held on to my memories of her as a model of ethical, intelligent but most importantly kind engagement. Thank you Martha; my life is better for having known you. As stupid as it is for a long ago friend to try this early alleviate the pain of her family and present friends with a noble quotation, she was a St Johnny so she would understand forgive me for my good, if untimely, intention when I say, as Faulkner said,"The past isn't dead. It isn't even past." Martha lives on in all of our hearts and minds.
