    Bill and Bea McMartin bought my parents farm in 1961 after they bought my grandfather’s farm. I heard my parents repeat so many times that they could not have sold to nicer people. I got to spend some time with Bea in the last couple of years and this world is a poorer place without Bea and Bill McMartin, God bless them.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a kind and generous woman. I remember when I lived next door to your family and she would call me and tell me she had just made fresh doughnuts. Your mom made the BEST raised doughnuts. She will be missed.
