I share fond memories of the late Martha Moulton Tarlue in Freetown, Conakry and Philadelphia. Those moments still ripple my mind with the humor, motherly care and prayers she shared. Rest on Aunt Martha as you were fondly called by Valerie and Joyce. To all members of the family, take heart! All we can ever wish at this moment of her death is to rest near the heart of God!
