We just heard, with deep sorrow, of Marty's passing this morning. He was a wonderful man--always willing to share his tales and adventures. We enjoyed visiting with Aunt Marie and Marty--listening to his garage sale encounters. We could always count on his cheerful smile and attitude. We are sorry that we were unavailable for the services since we are living in Florida at this time. Marty will be missed!
Fondly, Joe and Joan
