  • My heartfelt sympathy to all of Aunty Martha's family. I have found memories of going to the farm with my mom. Aunty Martha always would have some delicious homemade treats. Even now, every time I make a Saskatoon pie, it brings me back to my childhood being at the farm. It’s never as good as aunty Martha's. May she Rest In Peace.
