I miss you.

Martha died from a pulmonary embolism. She had just moved into a new apartment with a new roommate when she began having trouble breathing. Finally, her roommate insisted on calling paramedics. Strapped to the gurney, Martha joked about 'not being able to flirt properly' with the paramedics. She made it into the emergency room when she went into cardiac arrest without successful resuscitation. I believe that she died Oct. 14, 1996 - 3 days after my birthday and 12 days before hers.

Martha was my very bestest friend in the whole wide world. She really was. I am not afraid to say that I loved her with all of my heart, and I miss her always.

We were lucky to have her as our friend.

We never lost touch and visited each other whenever our wallets would let us!

We had planned on retiring to the same old farts home together where we would plot scenarios to ensnare unsuspecting, good looking (are there any?), male nurses to do our bidding-- bidding for biddies! LOL

I don't think I could have survived my third high school without her friendship-- we met in Miss Finney's PE class and that was that- BFF. I have yet to meet ANYONE who can wield a wand of sarcastic wit better than Martha-- (challengers welcome!)

Who else would name their dogs "Phil and Steve" after the Mahre twins when they themselves don't ski? The best friend of an avid skier/sortaracer would, because the skier inspired her to have dogs! So she named them after something dear to her friend, Phil and Steve. (Although Paul would have been my choice!! LOL ;P)

It took Sarah (her sister) a YEAR to find an address and number for me because Martha knew it by heart.
We were loyal to the end, Martha, and YOU'LL ALWAYS BE MY BEST FRIEND.

Loved, Loved, Loved Martha. What a wicked sense of humor. I'll never forget when she confessed she had no idea how to run a vacuum cleaner...!!!

Miss you Martha!

Martha was one of few girls with a biting wit that a 17-year-old guy (me) could appreciate.

She was a great artist and I enjoyed working with her. I remember some deep conversations that we had in Mr. Naasz's class.

I wish I had taken the opportunity to get to know her better. How are things on the other side Martha?
