Our family attended New Beginnings Outreach with Marthalee. She was the kindest and sweetest loving person always giving hugs, kisses and words of encouragement to us. One Sunday, she handed my daughter Emily an offering and said "I want to invest in you". I always appreciated her prophetic gift and her words of knowledge. She was loved dearly by us and all who knew her. Her absence will be felt by many people. I am so thankful that she has finished her course. She ran her race well. She is at peace and no longer suffering pain. While we are sad, we rejoice in this.
