I will miss my Mom- Marti Musser very much. Unfortunately Stage 4 Kidney Cancer claimed her life, but not her spirit. She is well care for by our Dad, her Sons, and team of Health Care Professionals. Her spirit lives on in us, her students, and the many lives she touched as a teacher, and care giver in her many professions and volunteer work.
We had fond memories staying at your parents house in KC. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy for your loss. Please let me know if I can help.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your mom will be greatly missed. She was such an excellent mother! She put the needs of others before hers all while she didn't neglect herself. She was so good to all of Ann's friends. She took us to our first Duran Duran concert. She was the mom you could have candid conversations with. She listened without judgment and always steered us young people to the right direction and towards God. Rest In Peace Mrs. Musser.
So sorry for you lost
I'm so sorry for your lost . I didn't know she was sick. My prayers with you and your family.
Marti had a sweet spirit, kind heart, and strong will. She was a great friend and listener and will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
I have had the pleasure and fortune to spend some time with Marti, her husband, and her two sons. Her positive influence shows itself in her sons and grandchildren. She passed early, before her time, but she is up above keeping her daughter company with the task of watching over her special family. Take comfort in that.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I have fond memories of my Aunt Marti like when she taught me to bowl. I am sorry for your loss.
