    To Martha’s Children:
    My parents met John and Martha on a trip to Hawaii in 1978 and formed a long friendship spanning the ensuing years. Martha wrote them about John’s passing and after the Christmas cards stopped coming, my mom asked me to check on Martha via the internet . Obviously, I could never find anything until today when her obit surfaced. My mom, age 93, sends her condolences and wishes you to know she has many fun and fond memories of your parents. My parents enjoyed a long, happy life together (71+ years of marriage) before my dad passed away last summer at age 95. Their names were/are Bob and Kathy Mason. My mom hopes your mom’s last days were peaceful. God Bless.
