My first fond memory of Aunt Martha was when I was about 6 or 7 and we would gather at her house on the weekend and she would fix such a wonderful meal that included biscuits and gravy. I know she could fix her own biscuits from scratch but she would also bake the little Philsbury or Ballad biscuits in the can that you got at the store. Those were my first and I thought that was so neat. I believe I ate more than my share. Also many good memories of Aunt Martha all through my life and I cherish the last time I talked with her just before she went on to heaven. I loved her so very much. Ron Newlin
