We have lost a man that had so much more to give. I enjoyed our time spent talking when he was in recently. It is hard to say goodbye and I am sorry I will not be able to make it down for the Celebration of Life. Also enjoyed the phone conversations as much as he did...we should have had more of them. He will be missed by his family and may God comfort Joyce, Steel, Lance, Ashleigh, Cara and their families. Barbara and I love you guys. Robert we will see you again in Heaven. Love to a brother.

Steele and Krista so sorry for your loss. When we can’t mouth the words to Jesus because of the weight of our sadness, He still hears us. He’s that good of a Savior and a friend. Prayers for all the family and love ones of Mr Martin.
