We acknowledged the love, the trust and the support that has ebbed and flowed for 28 years. We have laid the ground work for our journey together into the future."

The few days we spent with you [Martha] was the best investment we ever could have made for our relationship. Your insights into problems we had worked on for years were amazing!

Everyone in the world should spend time with you. Thank you, thank you!!Ceci and Charlie Freeman
