"...It makes me give some thought to how fortunate I am."

Martha Mason of Lattimore, NC died today.

A quick story from ABC News on her a few years ago is here.

Postings from The Shelby Star are here.

Fellow bloggers, she greatly enjoyed following (ahem, Democratic) politics on her voice-activated computer. Reading her memoir mentioned in some of the articles would be as good a lesson in certain parts of NC history as anything else.

Martha, your Demon Deacons have been so good of late. Why leave now with football coming in a few months? My Tar Heel tears haven't quit falling since I heard this morning.
