Keith, Jim & Karen, Stacie, & family,
So very sorry for your loss. It has been many years since I had last seen Keith & Martha but never forgot their kindness and how fun they both were. Always so nice, always smiling, just all around great people. She was truly a wonderful lady. A lot of fun back in the old AMF/Rhythm Bowl days! So sorry, Keith. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God hold you close and carry you all through this difficult time. God bless.

We are so sorry to hear about Martha passing. I am so glad we were able to meet her and Keith a few years ago and discussed our family ties. Our prayers and sympathy are with you all!

Our prayers are with the Lofland, Hebble, & Clark families in their time of loss. Although I never met Martha, only recently I corresponded with Keith to learn of Martha’s condition as I inquired about her family ancestry. The North – Lofland family goes back to our common ancestor, Solomon Lofland (1810-1889)and his last born son Ned. My GGG grandmother Sarah Jane Lofland, Solomon’s first born married Tunis V. North making Martha a second cousin. I have learned Martha is a very kind, loving, and generous, wonderful person and I would very much like to have talked to her for hours and hours about the pioneer days of Plymouth, Ohio. My wife Beatrice and I send our deepest sympathy to her family and friends. Sincerely, Bruce and Bea North, Ashland, Ohio
