    Beautiful Miss Martha! ❤️ I met you in 1990, I can’t believe it was that long ago. You were such a wonderful person! You welcomed me with open arms from the first moment I met you. I always felt like family. When you met my Pookie, you loved him too. We always loved your delicious cooking and the barbecues at Maria’s in NJ. You loved on my babies, like they were your own. You will be missed. Thank you for the wonderful memories. May your memory be a blessing to all of us who loved you.❤️ Rest easily in Heaven.

    As the song says, “I can only imagine.....”. December 30, 2020 was a quiet and beautiful day in Heaven. Peaceful and serene. And then, this loud noise and this commotion! “WEPPPPPPPAAAA!!!!” Martha announcing her arrival into Heaven with shouts of joy, as she salsa danced her way through the Pearly Gates”. St. Peter getting kinda shook up because it’s his job to announce new arrivals. But Mrs. Spencer telling him with that classic Boricua accent, “Gracias, but I got this”. Mr. Spencer hears the commotion and comes and thinks, “That’s gotta be Martha!!” He comes running over, sees her, hugs her and says, “Esposa, you are as loud and as beautiful as ever!!” I’ll leave it to those of you who knew Mr. and Mrs. Spencer best to supply the accents. But, can you imagine?

    Years and years ago, I was a young man hopelessly and desperately in love with Mr. and Mrs. Spencer’s beautiful daughter, Maria. We lived in different states. Remember, young people: no cellphones then. Every day, several times a day, I would call looking for my beloved Maria. And every time that I called, Mrs. Spencer would take my call , patiently and kindly and share a few friendly words with me, before telling me that she would tell Maria that I called. Kind an patient each and every time. A mother’s kindness. As though she knew how it felt to be separated from the one she loved, Mr. Spencer? I have never forgotten, never stopped appreciating those small, but pure, acts of kindness and patience. Thank you, Mrs. Spencer!!

    When all is said and done, it’s good to consider what we have done to add a small decoration upon the magnificence of God’s creation. God created this beautiful place called Orchard Beach. And it was perfect enough all by itself. But He created it for us to add a special type of life and love and color. Sounds to me that Ms. Spencer added much life and love and color and beautiful flavor to God’s creation. Because of her dancing and singing and playing and sharing time with friends and family, Mrs. Spencer God’s magnificent creation a bit more special. She did with that gift from God exactly what God wanted her to do—she added life and love and joy!

    Dear Maria: The greatest compliment that I can give to both you and Mrs. Spencer is that, in you, in how you have raised your girls, I can see that your mother did her job1–I can see that your momma raised you right!! To Mark, Delores and Roseanne, to Maria: My condolences and prayers for peace and comfort. Cry because you miss your mother, but also cry because you know that she’s ok. Take care and stay close to your mother’s greatest treasure-her family. Know that your mother is with you, “Like a handprint on your heart “. Allow me the honor and privilege of dedicating one of my favorite songs to you and your mother. Please listen to it and cry good tears. The song is called, “For Good “. It’s the studio version, not live. From the play, “Wicked “. By Idina menzel. Let me know via Maria if you like it.

    God bless and comfort you. Whenever you find yourself at the beach, any beach, think of your mother in her youth and glory days, singing, dancing, playing, enjoying family at her “home beach “. Then smile, tell her that you love her and feel her handprint on your heart.

    Titi Martha!!
    I can never thank you enough for all that you have taught me, given to me, and done for Sydney and I. You always surprised us by attending all of our accomplishments. You are always the 1st one, saying to me “Jessica I’m proud of you! You are a wonderful mother”. I can never repay you. All I can do is tell you that I love you with all my heart, that I’m grateful for you, and that I cherish you and the closeness we share. So many times, I think of myself as a strong and independent person, filled with confidence and pride. And sometimes I forget that! But then in just a moment of sadness I hear God’s little voice saying, remember all of your angels who speak to you in strength! And just like that you and a few voices saying “Get up and shake off, today is a new day”! It’s all because of you, My Aunt (first candle) and My Friend (second candle)! Thank you for loving ME, embracing ME into your family, and excepting ME just the way I am!!
    Your Jessica.

    Dearest Martha Spencer,

    I met you in 1970 as you were the mother of my best friend Maria Lisa Spencer. You have been family to me since that day. I have wonderful memories of spending the night at your house on Parker Street, you cooking your famous arroz con gondules and reaching me your many famous Puerto Rican expressions when you were not too happy! LOL. I have fond memories of you making sure we had fun on Orchard Beach, you attending all of my family functions and always welcoming my family to your family functions. You have always been amazingly creative and blessed me with the cutest hand made party favors for my baby shower. Thank you for being a wonderful, loyal and loving person. You will be missed immensely but never ever forgotten. I love you. Your other daughter, Karen Cayson.

    There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss you and think about you. Pouring your morning coffee with crackers, taking you to your favorite store the <br />
 goodwill,spending our Friday nights having a drink, your favorite B&B. I feel your presence around me especially when I walk into you beautiful room. The scent of your clothes, fresh and clean of fabric softener. So surreal! Our home (your home feels empty without you. I miss cuddling up next to you when hubby was away on business and it was hard to sleep by myself. I use to throw my leg over you. you hit me and said to get my leg off of you because she wasn't Greg.. <br />
Cannot not believe the last time I hugged you  touched you was the end of August during Greg's 50th birthday party before I left to NY. Calling each other daily on video was all we had to feel close. All you worried about was when I was coming home.<br />
It broke my heart to see you decline each day. Wishing we had more time with you mommy. I love you now and forever.
