Not sure what to say?

We will miss you Marty. You were our Guardian angel from the fist day we met you. You welcomed us into your home and loved us like your own. My garden buddy will be gone now but all that you taught us will carry on. Morgan Ct will miss seeing out and about , but we all know you are watching over us. I made a promise to Adeline and am proud to say I kept it! Love you always. The Flugas

Throughout our lives, our family was truly blessed to have Marty (and Adeline) as our BONUS GRANDPARENTS. His physical presence will be terribly missed by our family, yet the plethora of wonderful memories created together will remain in our hearts, minds, and soul. I know that Adeline was anxiously waiting at the pearly gates of Heaven to welcome Marty home with open arms. His wings were ready, but our hearts were not.

Uncle Marty may you be in heaven now with your beautiful wife and all your brothers and sisters. I am sure they are happy you have come to be again with them. May you rest in peace after a long good life!
