I went over Marty’s house a couple of weeks before she passed away. I said, “We need a day”, because it had been so long since we had spent the day together what with me working two jobs and all. We went on Wednesday, January 12th to the Naro Expanded Cinema in Norfolk, VA. First we went and got some take out dinner at the 10 Top Grill across the street from the theatre. She wanted to see the movie “Jackie” about Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis’ time in the White House starring Natalie Portman. We took our dinner into the theatre (I was sure that no one would stop Marty from doing this, lol). The movie was great and then we went to a meeting in Portsmouth. We stopped at the store on the way home to get something that she needed. We didn’t get back to the condo until at least midnight. I will always remember her beautiful smile, her caring manner and her wonderful backbone. Marty was there when I needed a friend and I was there for her when she needed a friend. I will miss her more than I can say. Sleep peaceful my wonderful angel of a friend, for you have so earned those wings. Until we meet again.
