    Many a good time working with Martha at the Ogdensburg Journal. Boy, did we laugh a lot! We won’t bring up the time Martha got mad at Chuck, walked out the back door, down the alley and her feet never hit the ground until she got home! She had her temper, but her good humor overrode it. Not only were we co-workers, but also great friends. I was always welcome at the Demers home and have many warm memories of my times spent there. Martha was always on my visit list after I moved away. I can still see your mother laugh so hard she couldn’t talk and get so ticked off at your dad because he was teasing her. Never a dull moment at the Demers home. Peter, Ginny, Carrie, John, Matt — I am so sorry for your loss.
