    I just found out that Martha has passed on to heaven. She was one of the sweetest ladies I know . I knew her in Lena Vista Baptist Church and at Christian Pharmacy. Then when they moved back to Auburndale, at Auburndale Community Pharmacy. We were Facebook friends and I loved hearing from her. She loved her family and friends very much and will be missed by all that knew her. Her friend, Joyce
