One Condolence for Martha P. McAllister

  • Dear John,
    You may remember Martha and I were the best of friends while we were at Snow Hill High. We had many shenanigans together…many overnights. One of my most precious memories is that when we were preparing to move to Indiana Martha/your family gave me a wonderful cocker spaniel puppy, Gigi. What a surprise!
    I am so sorry for yours and the world’s loss of Martha. I always regretted not staying in touch with her.
