    My sweet Martha, we were together for too short a time. You instantly became a sister to me. I will never forget your humour, your infectious laugh, your beautiful face and most of all your beautiful, kind and generous nature. You will always be in my heart and I will live you forever my Sista. God speed and God bless and thank you for being there for us. You will be loved forever; until we meet again may God keep you in the palm of his hand. ❤️

    Martha left this world too early despite a long and courageous struggle. A kind and gentle soul, she left a positive impact on everyone she touched.
    She exemplified unconditional love, she brought out the best in all of us and especially her dearest Bill. Sincerest condolences to brother Bill, Davide, Brianna and her extended family. Martha, you will be terribly missed but never forgotten.

      Thank you for your kindness. You’re right, of course, that she always put others before her own needs. Our time together was too short and yet was filled with great memories and love.

    David and I were truly shocked when we heard last week of Martha’s passing……our deepest sympathies go to Davide and to Bill on their sad, sad loss.

    My friendship with Martha dates back all the way to 1976, when Dorothy and I first arrived in Montreal for our two-year work placement and, within minutes of Dorothy starting her first job, her new work colleague Martha befriended her, with a continuing close friendship that stood the test of 3000 miles apart for over 30 years until Dorothy’s passing in 2011.

    In our earliest times in Montreal, Dorothy and I, together with Martha and Joe, spent many, many happy occasions together, both generally socialising, but also amongst their families, who gave us fantastic hospitality and support whilst we lived away from our home in the UK.

    On various occasions during our friendship, Dorothy, David and I subsequently returned to Montreal and spent great times with both Martha and Davide and, more recently, together with Marilyn, of meeting Bill, about whom Martha spoke so devotedly.

    And, of course, even after Dorothy’s passing, Martha and I kept in regular contact with each other, remembering many good and light-hearted times that we had all spent together.

    Martha’s passing is very sad and is a most upsetting loss…..she was a wonderful, loyal friend, for whom I have, and will always have, very fond memories.

    I am writing you because I cant talk right now. i received the news on my best friend and I am heart broken. i have no words at all. i feel lost because i did not say what i wanted to tell her. i t hought we would of had more time. she was my little sister and the only girlfriend i had. she was always there for me and my family in the roughest times in my life and alway made my days brighter in knowing she cared as i did. i will miss her very much but know one day, we will all be together in peace and listening to her say to me, as she always did, Lynda youre too funny! she is gone from earth but is now looking down at us as angels do with her sweet smile saying, i am here, dont forget me (which no one will ever). she left an imprint on us and a lot of others. i loved her before, now and always. Martha, i will see you in heaven,, i have no doubts. l

    My dear Bill. I am so truly sorry for Martha’s passing. I’ve only known you a short time and know how much you love her. You did everything you could and more. I only met her once, briefly, but I could tell what a lovely and sweet person she was, I wish I hadn’t gotten to know her. She will for ever be in your heart. My condolences to all who loved her.

    Martha you became a part of my life that I cherished so much. You got me through some rough patches and then made me laugh when I felt like giving up. Distance never changed my love for you and then both you and Bill got me home safe and sound. I can hear your voice and that funny laugh. I miss our daily conversations and those nonsense texts. I truly miss you and honestly love that soul that made you Martha. ❤️
