    My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.  As a friend and ministry partner of Martha's sister, Mary Alice, I had the opportunity to meet Martha a few times and get to know her through her sister's eyes.  I was inspired by her upbeat spirit, her care and compassion for others, regardless of what her circumstances were, and her generosity.

    Martha's legacy of kindness, generosity and positive attitude will live of through the many lives she touched.

    I know your hearts are heavy and breaking with her loss, but what an assurance that she is in Heaven with Jesus.

    May the Lord comfort all of you during this difficult time.

    I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Martha’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort be with you to help you cope. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow and read of our amazing hope for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28) For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief and death please visit JW.org.

    Our family is so deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Mrs. Lazaro. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends during this difficult time.  Both of my son's had the honor and privilege of being students of hers at Nerge Elementary school in the 2/3 multiage classroom many many years ago. She was an amazing teacher who lived for and gave to her students each and every day. Her passion for teaching was unparalleled to any of what we experienced.   I enjoyed helping out in the classroom or volunteering for a field trip because it was if you were watching magic happen.  Her passion, work ethic, kindness, knowledge, positivity, guidance and compassion were demonstrated on a daily basis without faltering. Although my son's are both adults now we all still talk about how she was their best and favorite teacher. They were blessed to have been in her classroom and we were blessed to have had her touch our lives. The world was a better place with her in it.  Rest in peace Mrs. Lazaro. 

    With our most heartfelt condolences,

    Dino, Laura, Anthony and Chris Marzulli

    Many friends come into our lives, but very few leave footprints on our hearts.  She was an amazing women, teacher, and special 

    friend-she will truly be missed and never forgotten.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her whole family

    Martha was the true definition of an Earth Angel.  Her radiant smile lit up the lives of those who were blessed to know her.  Martha was an outstanding educator and a loving colleague.  She was compassionate and always looked to the bright side.  Martha had a way of making everyone she knew feel like they were special.  She worked hard to help her students, as well as being a partner with her teaching peers.  The world has lost an angel, but Heaven has received one.  Rest in peace in the arms of God, Martha.  Your smile will illuminate the night skies, because you will be one of the stars.
