I MISS YOU WHEN YOUíRE NOT AROUND
IíM EVEN LOST WITHOUT YOUR SOUND
THE WAY YOU TELL ME ďITíS ALL RIGHTĒ
BUT IT HURTS BECAUSE YOUíRE NOT IN SIGHT
YOUíRE NOT WITHIN MY REACH
AND I DONíT UNDERSTAND
WHEN I REACH OUT TO HOLD
I DONíT FEEL YOUR HAND
THE WAY YOU HUGGED ME
YOU ALWAYS KNEW HOW
I TOOK IT ALL FOR GRANTED
AND I MISS IT ALL SO MUCH
BUT IT HURTS THE WORSE WHEN
I DONíT HAVE YOU TO SEE, HEAR OR TOUCH

Life will never be the same without our beautiful Mother. I know she went
to a better place to be with Daddy and Rick. We will love them all forever.
Mom you were so much more than a mother to me. I know you knew that, but I
wish I could tell you one more time. I love you so much.

I want to tell her kids I am so sorry she passed and how much I loved her.
All of us kids were all in each others homes frequently playing and
probably driving her crazy when growing up and even when grown always felt
at home when visiting her and Lloyd. She always treated us 3 like her own
kids which included a good talking to when we did somethng wrong. She is
missed but is without pain and with Jesus now and someday we will see her

I will never forget Martha. She and Lloyd and their whole family were close
to my family for so many years that it seemed like it would go on for
forever! We will certainly miss her. How I wish I could be with "all you
kids" now and hug and pray with you! But since I can't do that, please know
that I love you very much and pray for the comfort that only The Holy
Sririt can give to you! Just remember- she is with Jesus now and her loved
ones in heaven. We must be sure our hearts are prepared to be with her, the
rest of the family and Jesus one day, not far away, for surely Jesus is
coming soon!! Love to you all, Aunt Ethel

I remember Martha mostly as a cheerful person. She was always ready to
She always seemed to have time to listen to us kids... even though when all
of us were together we made quite a mob!
I also remember a lot of good meals. She didn't complain about how much we
ate or cooking.
She was a very good person.

This was one of the most genuine women I have ever known. If I could hold
someone up as an example that I would want to be more like, it would be
Martha June Martin. Her name and her nature live on in my daughter, her
granddaughter, Kimistry June Martin...who is loving, forgiving and
kindhearted; who also shares her middle name. Martha June Martin...her name
'sings' just her nature...always pleasant to be around life was always
better just because you were around her. You will be sorely missed
Martha..but we will see you again and I do wish I would have been given the
ability to cook fried chicken like you did...but I assure you it's not WHAT
you did that will be missed, it's WHO YOU ARE that will be most missed.
love you forever...joy lynn martin

Mom, you were like a real mother whenever I was there in Grangerland and
Groceville, and also in Huffman. I lost track with everyone over the years
and I am so sorry to hear about your passing. I remember Jimbo and I coming
out to the place in Grangerland and you would NEVER let us leave until you
fed us. You were a special lady and always had good things to say. My
perayers are with your family and I would love to hear from Teri or Mike.
I'm doing good, we all grew up into better people and you will always be
remembered. God Bless you and Pop yall are both in my Prayers. God Bless
and if Teri or Mike read this please email me or call me I'm listed in
Dayton, Tx. under my name.
