“THE CARAMEL LADY”
Mom passed away on March 13,2023- Born in Arkansas and raised in Alabama
KINDNESS IS FREE SPRINKLING IT EVERYWHERE
MARTE showed sweet kindness to all.
She started making Carmel's years ago when she was caring for her Husband who had dementia. She made the Carmel's and Dad wrapped them and put them in bags. Mom’s purse had many bags of Carmel's to share with Doctors, RN, Medical staff, grocery staff, banking staff, church folks, hairdressers, cleaners and anyone who cross their path.
Marte made her mark on the world by showing sweet kindness. She made her last batch the first of March as she had a sweet homecoming with Jesus and her devoted husband of 70 years.
How do you measure a lifetime?
By the hours or the days or the years?
You measure the memory.
You treasure the moment.
You remember all the blessings you’ve been given.
And thank the good Lord above
For every moment you’ve been loved,
Every hour, every day that you’ve been livin’.
That’s how you measure a lifetime. - Kathi Lee Gifford
