My sincere condolences to Linda, Julia, Keith and Alan. Your mom was always so sweet and kind to everyone. She had a soft spoken way about her that just drew you to her immediately. Some of my fondest memories are of the fun times we all had at square dancing. I will be thinking of you and your families. Sherry (Smith) Reed

Not sure how, or why, but I happened to be looking at the Obituaries today and noticed that Mrs. Gayman passed away. As a boy, growing up in the St Paul Lutheran Church, the Gayman family became a 2nd family to me. I will always remember Mrs. Gayman's positive outlook on life and her kind heart. She always welcomed me and made me feel that I was always welcomed in their home. During my teen-age years my family moved close to their farm and during the summertime I would spend most of my days there. It was during those days that I learned the value of work and comradery. Mr. Gayman gave me my first paying job as a 9th grader in high school and I still look fondly on lifting those bales of hay of the wagons and loading them in the barn on those hot summer days. Growing up in a home where love wasn't a priority, I saw in the Gayman family a caring and nurturing love that helped shape me into the person I am today and I am forever grateful. My sincere condolences to Linda, Julia, Keith and Alan and to all of those who had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Gayman. Glory be to God that one day, we will all will be able to meet again on "that beautiful shore in the bye and bye." - Arthur Hameister, Jr.

I had the pleasure of getting ro know Martha i believe in 1991 or 1992 while she was in the carlisle hospital, i was a junior volunteer at that time, and got to know Martha well, she sent me a birthday card every year for some time then they stopped, never knew what had happened to her.
What a beautiful person she was.
My condolences to her family and friends. God bless.
