Joan, Jim & Family;
Martha, Harold, and all your family were such an important part of my family as we were growing up. We spent many hours playing with the Hill kids and visiting your grandparents across the road. As I recall, my mother, Mary Alice, worked for them before she and our dad, Raymond, were married. Martha was such a loving and lovely lady, you were blessed to have her in your lives for so many, many years.
