    Marty, Amy, and family:
    I am sorry to hear of Martha’s passing. I have many, many great memories of her during our time working together. She was helpful to me when staring my career and during my time at McCann she was a mentor and friend. And she always told it like it was! Her sense of humor often put a smile on my face and still does as I remember her. God bless you. Ellen
