Dave and Sue (Staub) Wilhelm -
Dear Staub family members, Dave and I send our thoughts and prayers to you all with the passing of Aunt Martha. She was a lovely woman. I have wonderful memories of my visits with her as I grew up. I can still hear her laugh and the sound of her voice. She was very special to me.
