I have never met the family.  I read the story in the Columbus Dispatch.  I am so very sorry for the entire families loss.  This is such a tragic string of events.  
I can honestly say I would have done the same exact thing.  I will pray that Marta is now with her daughter.

Brittany and family. I'm so sorry to hear about the tragedy that you are going through. Marta will be missed very much. I have worked with Marta since she started there at Gmh. She als
ways talked about you and her grandchildren. There had been a few times that she has had chest pain while she was working and I told her she should get that checked out but she was stubborn. The days ahead will be hard for you but there is only one person that will help you get through this and you should trust Jesus in this time. One day if you can read psalm 23 or just the book of psalms. One day their will be a reunion in heaven someday and my hope is that we will meet her again in heaven. Again i want to express my condolences.

I just read this tragic story in the newspaper.  I am sending prayers of strength and grace for your family.  My husband committed suicide in January 2005.  Please don't hold anger or feel blame for Marta.  Losing Courtney was more than she could handle at that point in time.  You cannot change what has happened in either tragedy.  You can't understand "why".  Allow God's grace to feel their peace.  After Mike's death, I realized there are pre-written chapters of our lives...we may not like them or understand them...but we have to get through them.  Find hope in the memories.  Find a support group for grief and loss.  Read.  There is a little book available at Hallmark stores called "Good Grief".  There is a children's book available at Barnes and Noble's called "Tear Soup".  Both are simple, yet wonderful realease books.  Best wishes to all of you!  Treasure the memories, find forgiveness and seek comfort in the Lord.  Cry and scream and listen to loud music in the car.  Sit silently and mourn.  Do what you feel...don't allow anyone to tell you differently.  Mourning is a long process and it is different for each person.  Take care of yourselves.  The angels surrounded both Courtney and Marta and took them home.  They both will come to you in dreams over the next few months and you will know they are okay.  You will all smile again and you will laugh again...I will pray for all of you.  Patti

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with Marta and can't imagine what you going thru losing Marta and Courtney.
Marta and I discovered that my husband, Larry and her dad were first cousins.  We spent time talking about how their family each went their own ways.  I hope at this time they will draw closer.                                           If anyone knew why these things happened, it would be easier, but since that is not possible, just let all of your good memories help you thru these terrible days.  Your are in my prayers.

Dear Don and Donna,

I was glancing through the local paper when I read of the loss of your dear loved ones.

The years pass us by so quickly, however when I pass your previous home on Fifth Street, I often reflect on all the good times we shared.

May you and your family find peace and comfort in knowing that others care. My deepest sympathy to both of you and also to your family.

Very truly yours,

I lost my grandma when I was 12. The pain will get better. You will always miss her and think of her, she will live forever in your heart. Be sure to share stories about grandma with Lincoln when he is older. I know it's hard to understand, but just remember all the fun and love you shared.
