We are sorry to hear of the loss of your Father. This is a difficult time in and of itself and then to lose a loved one at a time when you can't be near him. Prayers for all Martin's family that you feel His love and peace.

We are so sorry to hear of Martinís passing. There are so many wonderful, fond memories not only as neighbors but growing up with the family, fun sleepovers accompanied by early morning chores (buckets of feed carried to the milk cows). What a delightful family, full of laughter, joy, and above all, love shared with one another!
Sending hugs and prayers to all,
Karen and Brian
