    KATE, STEWART & FAMILY:
    Gone from our lives far too soon.
    Martha put up a great fight & still maintained her sense of humor, dignity through her most difficult journey. Martha & I go way back from her days as an EEG student. Your Mom was great lady & good at her job & always hoped she would one day return to her career. She was a good friend over the years & we had a few good visits & chuckles whilst in hospital. Remember the good times & keep them in your heart as they will help you through these difficult times
    Love Joan Block

  11. Dear Laurie; Kate and Stewart

    I met your sister/mum through one of her neighbours/friends (Robin). Your mum was a very courageous woman who taught me to approach cancer and our own cancer treatments with strength and determination. She was a source of inspiration to me and to others at Tom Baker. I am very sorry for your loss.

    Because of work committments, I am unable to attend the funeral. I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Katie and Stewart and family. I knew Martha (and her mother Joyce) from the Children’s Hospital for the last 30 years and found her to be a compassionate, hard working, kind, personable, helpful, and efficient lady! I didn’t know that she was ill. May she rest in peace!

    Kate and Stewart, I hope that you may find some comfort in knowing that your Mother loved you both more than anything else. We shared many moments over the years and know that you were truly her pride and joy. Through you her warmth, strength and commitment will continue on.

    Laurie, you were always and continue to be her “rock”. You were always there for her and I know that you shared a very special relationship with your dear sister. She treasured your presence in her life and I know you will miss her greatly.

    My thoughts and love are with you all and to my dear friend Martha, I will miss you more than I can say. Until we meet again, please stay just as you always were. Strong, committed and oh so full of warmth.

    With love Leanne
