Our thoughts and prayers go out to you on the loss of your mom. My husband was a student of Moe's and I met your mom almost 30 years ago. While we only saw her periodically after 2001, I will never forget her or the advice she gave me as a new mother, which has stuck with me all these years and which I have passed on to my own children who are now parents. She was a great inspiration and a wonderful, wonderful woman and you were very blessed to have her. She will be missed by many.

Dear Family,
I first met Marty many years ago at a get together of friends. Moe was my husband's teacher at Nuner School. My husband and I were teachers here in South Bend and always enjoyed our times with Marty and Moe. I remember Marty's gracious and kind manner - a truly lovely lady. You have my deepest sympathy and are in my thoughts and prayers. My own dear husband Ron passed away in 2014.
Love, Linda Smith
