    So sorry to hear of Mrs. Martin's passing. She was a special teacher and loved and cared for her students. She loved teaching us all about the English language and her love of the written word. ! I'm so thankful to have been her student.
    Our sympathy to the family,
    Amy Mullen Brennan and family
