I was very saddened to learn of Martha’s passing. I have such fond memories of her and her brother George in my second grade classroom. They were both so kind and respectful. I had the good fortune to see Martha at your restaurant a few years ago. I was so happy to see what a wonderful young woman she had grown up to be. Please accept my deepest condolences at this difficult time.

Martha was a wonderful person. She showed me her beautiful Soul during a Yoga session. She has shown my grandchildren respect for living things and how to be fruitful through their creative energy. She will be missed by my family and I so very much.
