Condolence From: The Foster Family
Condolence: Martha was such a lovely lady & Alice's best friend before Martha moved to Dubuque & Alice's memories faded with Alzheimer's. Unfortunately Ron, Gary & I don't feel Alice is well enough to travel from Independence to Dubuque at this time, but please know the entire Foster Family is thinking of your family & all the wonderful memories Alice & Martha made together. May your memories of such a wonderful lady bring you peace.

Condolence From: Larry and Pam Murley
Condolence: Such a lovely lady. We stopped in and visited her at Sunset. I will always remember her laugh. Enjoyed a visit with her in Lamont one time when she shared her beautiful quilts she had made. Always thought fondly of her, Alice, Charlotte and Harriet at the Methodist Church.

Condolence From: Mary Ann Bivens
Condolence: Thought & prayers are with you as you bid Martha good bye, you just have to remember all the memories that you now hold dear to your heart. At her age I can only image how many you have.
I remember the family gatherings that always took place at Grandma Laaker's place. I was Hilda Bivens daughter in law, married to Bill.
Rembering you tomorrow, & will say a prayer to her.

Condolence: My husband, Mark and I send our condolences to all of the Laaker family. I am Kenny's wife, Dianna's sister.
Although I never meant Martha, she shares her birthday with our mother which makes her even more special!
As we have gotten to know Kenny and welcome him into our family, I can only say that you must be a very special, God loving woman and I appreciate and love you for welcoming my sister into your family! Your family represents what we all desire when raising children- kind, loving, and assets to our great world we all share! Again, our condolences!
