katherine_martin_new.jpgSusan notes: Katherine Martin, author, playwright, wife, mother, and 'beauty,' is part of the fabric of this website.

Martin died in January 14, 2006. She and I never met in this life; perhaps we will in another. Her husband Franc Sloan generously agreed to share two letters he wrote to family and friends about her departure from this world (fittingly, on a big red horse).

All children were cherished.

My mother-in-law Bette died in early 2008. She was a wonderful woman. This is the eulogy I delivered at her funeral.
