AJ, Tyler, and Bob, I am so shocked to hear this news for the first time today. I am extending my sincere sympathy to you. Martha and I would visit by phone on occasion. Most recently we chatted on her birthday. I live in North Platte, NE. and my dad, Paul Zelfer from Scenic, SD, was Martha´s mom´s brother. May God bless and guide you in the upcoming days.
