Dear Bond Family, I, too, am so sorry for the passing of your Mom, wife, sister, and friend. May God's sweet Holy Spirit bring His peace to you now and the days ahead. Do you remember the song we all used to sing "Heaven's Getting Sweeter All the Time"? Rodonnah Rodonnah Blasingame Briscoe, January 10, 2008 Marti was the dearest sister ever. She was probably the best friend I had on this earth. I have no doubt that the Lord had bigger and better things for her to do. She was a real prayer warrior and we will miss that here on earth, but she will be on her knees in heaven forever more and we will all be in her prayers constantly. My prayers are for Kenneth and the children. I know we will all miss her dearly, but the Lord will get us all through. So long my wonderful sister, I will see you in heaven.
