  11. My dear aunt Marti❤
    U had a heart of gold, u loved unconditionally and never met a stranger. U loved life to the fullest and was always willing to do for others even if it meant u did without! U enjoyed the little things in life and didn’t have to have the best even tho u deserved it. U didn’t have much but u didn’t care because all u needed was family. We aren’t supposed to question God but I find myself wondering why, why did he have to take you? I don’t understand. I just can’t wrap my head around it, we had plans that day, I just talked to you the night before. Why? Why? Why? I hope you know just how much you was loved. The only peace I can get from this is the fact that you didn’t suffer. I know your watching over us but dammit you should be here!!!!!! I love u forever❤

  13. Marti, I love you more than you ever knew. I want you to know that my heart is forever changed and life won’t be the same without you. We had disagreements, like most sisters do, but I would not have wanted anyone but you for my sister. I won’t be able to be half the Nana you were to your grandbabies but I will be the best Mimi I can to them. Until we meet again….I love you so much!💕#sisters

  14. Marti, I love you more than you ever knew. I cannot believe you are gone. My heart is forever changed. You had a heart of gold and enough love for the universe. I loved listening to people talk about your selflessness and the love you had shared with them. It warmed my heart. I promised your grandbabies that I would be the best Mimi I could be for them but I told them that I could not top their Nana! You were the best Nana ever! I love you so much Marti and I wish I could hug you and tell you how much I love you! Rest in peace beautiful sister…until we meet again! #sisters
