Hello Martha,      
 
I love your  column. I always look forward to reading it in the paper and I miss it when it's not there. I am 53 and I can relate to what you write. It is often hilarious and so spot on. Have you ever thought of writing your memoirs?? I bet it would be a hoot!! Keep writing.
 
Sincerely, CS

Ms. Morgan, I am a fan of your newspaper articles and often cut them out for my Mom. She is 86 years young and lives in Victoria. She loves your articles and I bought your [first] book for her. She is on the verge (in the next year or two, maybe) of moving out of her home and into an apartment. You had a whole series of articles on moving out of your home and I would love to send them to my Mom. 
 
How do I get your past articles, and where can I find your 2nd book? 
 
Thank you for your consideration and for providing me which such wonderful, insightful reading.

Dear Martha,
 
Your column [Aging Brains] in the Humboldt Journal gave me a rare chuckle. Thank you. I too do crosswords and relate precisely.

Hi Martha, 
 
I enjoy reading your column. I really like the down to earth simplicity of your style. You do that very well and consequently are able to connect with your audience in a very real sense. Without a doubt your subjects touch someone because they are always topics and feelings that touch us all somehow. So thanks.

Dear Martha,
 
"Have I told you lately that I love you....". No, I guess it's been a while.
 
Your columns come so close to home so often that I can't help but admire a young lady who is willing to share her thoughts and feelings. This time you may even have helped me to make up my mind.
 
I love my little home with it's trees, birds, flowers, independence, but I was never built to be 'alone'.
 
Thank you for being you,

Martha,
 
I know when you go on vacation, people call to see why your column doesn't appear. Your fans are very loyal.
  Thank you for writing. It's always great to hear from you.
