Many of us woke up today to the sad news of the passing of Martha's youngest sister, Laura Plimpton. Laura suffered a brain aneurism and died yesterday in hospital, surrounded by her family: her husband Randy and her three children, Sophie, Christopher and Charlie. She was 59 years old. Many of us knew Laura to be Martha's closest sister and someone who had worked with Martha for more than 25 years. She worked in the radio department for many years as a script writer and also contributed to many of Martha's ventures behind the scenes as a researcher. She will be so sadly missed. On behalf of everyone who reads Martha Moments, I want to extend my deepest sympathies to Martha, Laura's family and all the Kostyras. Laura is in our thoughts and prayers. Vist Martha's Blog to read Laura's obituary (written by her children) or to leave a comment for Martha and her family.
