Hi Marty, it is the second day of Jan. 2014. A brand new year and I am going to try to do better and try to be stronger. I kee thinking that you are not in pain anymore and you would want that for me. I'll probably have a bad day now and then ,but I guess that is okay. Tonight is 32 degrees below 0 with the wind chill factor, so there wouldn't be any snowmobiling for you for a few days. The family is doing pretty good. They all have their days because they miss you so much, and that is...

Happy Birthday, Marty. I miss you so much. You had many birthday wishes on Facebook from your family and friends. You would have been 69 today. I bought you a birthday card and I put a wreath that I bought for you at church, out in front of my apartment on a wreath holder , in memory of you. We couldn't get in to the cemetery because of the ice storm andwhere the plow had plowed all that icy snow up on the side of the road, so where the snow bankings are in front of the driveways it...

You were my one and only love. Our favorite song was"Keeper of the Stars" and the words are so true.It is still my favorite song i know it was no accident me finding you. We had 46 wonderful years together and i have so many wonderful memories to keep me going. I will just be glad when i get to the...

Hi Sweetheart. I miss you more than ever and it was 10 months yesterday since you have passed. Ten long lonely months.You should never been such a wonderful husband and then i wouldn't miss you so much.I guess i don't really mean that, then i wouldn't have had 47 wonderful years knowing you and so many years of wonderful memories. I have come a long ways from 10 months ago. Thanks to God, family, friends, and knowing that you would be proud of how i have come.We sold the house where we made...

This one is for you, Marty. It has been 4 months since you have passed, even though it seems a lifetime. You were a wonderful person and had many, many friends. I don't think you ever realized how much you meant to so many people. You were a wonderful husband, a great Dad, a fantastic grandfather, a terrific brother, a loving Uncle to all your nieces and nephews, and a loyal friend to many.Your heart had so much love in it that it was given to all of us. We love you very much and miss you...

I am truly sorry that I missed Marty's memorial service. Please, all his friends and relatives, forgive me. Marty was an exceptional person whom I always looked forward to seeing during the times our gun clubs gathered. I shall miss him greatly.

I met Marty back in 1983, I became close friends with Troy and spent countless hours and even days, spreading into weeks and months at Marty and Marlene's home. I was never treated anything less than their own child. They included me in everything they did and never once said its time for you to go home, because their home was my home. It's been years since vie seen Marty, but I have the fondest of memories of this tremendous man. Marty you will be missed by many, you will be carried in many...
