    I am so glad she lived to see Martha out of prison and back doing well on TV and her business. I always felt Martha was not treated fairly on her stock deal case. RIP Big Martha.

    The end of an era.
    What a wonderful life she lead.
    How sad for Martha and her family to lose their matriarch.
    Even thought she was 93, it must be hard for her family to contemplate life without Big Martha.

    My best wishes to the family.
