  4. We are so sorry to hear of Martha’s death. I worked many years with her and
    had such a solid friendship. Our boys, Don, Allan and Steven had some great
    times when we all went to the lake and camped and fished. We have some
    wonderful memories of our time together.
    Remember, David and Linda– your Mother is not alone and neither are you.
    All of you are in our hearts, thoughts and our prayers.
    We are so sorry that we cannot be with you on Thursday, but we will be there
    in spirit.

  5. Martha Jean was a good friend of the Hughes family. Travis and Evelyn Hughes and their family send their love and prayers to the family. Martha Jean came in every summer to Simmie’s house and they enjoyed visiting with folks in Campti that she grew up with. I am so glad that I went to see her on Mother’s Day. I felt so compelled to go by and tell her how much I love her and her sweet family. We recently found pictures of Carrie, Lisa, Martha Jean and Leon at the Hughes camp on Toledo Bend. Carrie, please call me and let me know the addresses of David and Linda. 936-598-8250.
