Dear Martin family. I am so sad to hear of Sis's passing. Brother Charles (Charlie) was so fond of her as was I. We enjoyed her visits to us in California and now she and Charles can be re-united in heaven and probably talk about Mark Martin. He will love it. Love to you all. Lee I will send a check for $100 to the funeral home.

When you think Sis you can not help but smile!
She was a precious gift from God. She lit up a room when she walked in and you were in awe of her beautiful soul. She is an example to all of us to love unconditionally! I have saved her voice messages that she would sing her name; this is Aunt Sis and follow up with, I love you!
She is now happy with the Lord and smiling and watching over us all.
Her California Family will miss her tremendously and will cherish the memories that were created when she would visit us.
You are now with the Angels which u so richly deserve!
Love you Always,
Kim 😘🙏🏻😇

Dear Martin Family
Today with heavy hearts you laid to rest a special child of God Sis, Aunt Sis.
She knew only how to love unconditionally & her love she shared with everyone.
She touched many lives & to know Sis was to love her. May God give you all
the strength you need at this difficult time & I pray you can find comfort in
all the beautiful memories she made for you. We were blessed beyond measure to have had her in our lives & now we have an angel to watch over her earthly family. I will always remember her sweet smile & sheepish grin. She will be MISSED but never FORGOTTEN & one day we will all be together again!
My love forever,
