  • Dear cousins, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Aunt Martha. I am sorry I am not there to support you as I am in Arizona. I remember many summers spending time with Aunt Martha and Uncle Bob, we worked in the cake shop and spent time in the kitchen and much more.

    I am sorry for your loss, I understand the sadness you feel.

    Love all of you,


  • Years ago, Martha made a Superman cake for my son whi is now 36 years old.  I remember her being so friendly & helpful.  God bless and be with her family.  Prayers.

  • Dear Cindy & family,

    Your Mom was a very lovely lady.  She patiently taught me how to decorate cakes at Maplewood.

    With deep condolences,
