  4. How can I describe Marti-and do her justice? Loving, Caring, Independent,Opinionated(at times), Role Model, Always ‘there for you’, A Daughter, A Mother, A Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, A Friend, A Caregiver, but, most of all,an extremely loved and cherished lady. She was my friend and buddy even after it was not ‘cool’ to be my friend and buddy. Thank you Marti & her whole family for being part of my life and adding dimension to our lives. Thank you,God,for letting us borrow Marti for these past years.

  6. i am sorry to hear about the passing of Momma Marti. She was a terrific person who loved everybody. I was not her child but she treated me like one of her own sons. My heart goes out to Donna and her family. God bless and keep you all and may God bless Marti Gibson

  7. My Dear Marti: One of the last things you said to me was that we are the only two Queen family cousins left. I deeply cherish my memories of the days we spent together on the farm in Candler and later in Washington, when Mom and Dad welcomed you in as you established yourself here, married Bill, and started your family. To your four children I send my love. I’ll miss you so very much, and I promise to carry you in my heart as long as I live. May God Bless, Bev

  9. Donna and family:

    We are so saddened to hear of Miss Marti’s passing. She was such an important part of our lives, as she cared for our Kirstyn when she was a baby. It was easy to leave her each day with Marti as we knew she was loved to pieces. What a blessing you both were to us. You are in our prayers.

    Love,
    Bronwyn & Jimmy Burleson
