You sure were a gentle giant. We did not know you as a wrestler but as a kind, caring friend,neighbour of our son. You were there for us when our son passed away.(I know you are up there neighbours again). Yet, loosing you so young is very painful. Our hearts and prayers go out to your family and friends. Rest in peace dearest. No more Pain but eternal peace and harmony with the Angels.

To the Martinez Family, I wish to extend my deepest sympathies for the recent loss of your dear loved one. The loss must touch you very deeply as you face these first numbing days of grief. I hope the promise recorded at Isaiah 25:8, 9 will bring comfort to you as it has many, it reads: "He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces...And in that day one will certainly say: 'Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him."

As Andrew's first wrestling coach and grade 5 teacher, I have fond memories of his larger than life spirit and impish personality. Andrew was always quick with a smile and witty retort in class. He loved a good joke and never missed an opportunity to share a laugh with his school chums. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wonderful family.

My heart goes out to the Martin Family and to the friends of "Test". Ive been a huge wrestling fan since the mid 70's, as soon as i seen "Test" step into the ring i knew he could have been one of the greatest. From everything ive seen about Andrew was a great man outside the ring also. To his family i say "thank you" for sharing "Test'" talent with the world, and i have no doubts that Andrew passed his last test and was allowed to walk through the gates that lead to heavens. Thank You for the memories "Test". Sleep Well Andrew "Test" Martin you will be sadly missed by many...gishwe' muk kshe'mnIto pine' (May the great spirit bless you always)

Andrew was a neighbor for almost two years. He was kind, gentle and always smiling. My girls still have memories of him and ask about him from time to time. I am so sad that he died so early in his life. Such a senseless waste and loss. Breaks my heart! I hope he is a wrestling champ in heaven and has no pain - only peace.

To The Family and Friends of Andrew

I have een a long time wrestling fan, and it always saddens me when one of them leave us.

I watched Andrew so very many times on TV-I even have some of his matches on video. I was watching one of his old matches last night and it broke my heart to know he is no longer with us. He was such a good wrestler. I will miss not seeing him any more.

To his family please be assured he his not gone, everytime your heart beats he is there. Our loved ones ever leave us, they are always just heart beat away.

May he wrestl in Peace

Dear Mr and Mrs Martin and Family,

Years would pass without seeing him and everytime I would bump into him it was always the same greeting year after year...."hey Murf"...he never changed...I will always remember him for that...things in his life changed but he never did...same Andrew ...great guy! Please know I am thinking of you...

To Andrew's family, friends and millions of fans, you have my heartfelt sympathy. I followed his career from the day Bret Hart discovered him. He was always one of my favorite wrestlers. Being a fan of the sport my entire life, I have seen too many tragedies to count.
Andrew, I hope you are at peace. You will be greatly missed by all. There is an old song called "Heaven Needed a Champion". Well Heaven just got one more. God Bless you, Andrew.

To the Martin Family,

My thoughts and prayer are with you in this time of sorrow and pain. I signed the guest book on the Tampa Bay Online. But I wanted to sign here and tell your family what a great guy he was. I never met him in person but he was part of my life. I was a fan of him since 1999. In 2005, I had to have disc fusion surgery like Andrew ( I was in a car accident that caused me to have a herniated disc). At that time Andrew had a web site with a message board. I asked him on the message board how the surgery was and if he had any advice. He answered me back with an honest and straight forward answer. He made the surgery less worrisome for me. After my surgery a friend of mine met him at a signing and he asked her about me. He didn’t have to do that and he remembered. He was always like that too. We talked on the boards until he went back to WWE. Then in 2007, we started emailing each other on Myspace. I would always get at least one to two emails a month from him. The last one was on the 5th when I wished him a happy early birthday and he answer back saying he was fine and thanks. He was nothing but kind and caring, and I considered him a friend and angel to me. I just wanted to tell you how I remembered Andrew. And I wrote this poem which is on my other post but I felt like it need to be included on this one too. He will be missed by a lot of people.

Something is missing since you left us. Maybe it is the smiles you gave unconditionally to your fans, family and friends. Or maybe it is your bright, shining, blue eyes that seem to smile as you look at us. Or maybe it is your velvety voice as you speak. Or it could be the attitude and grace you show in life.
As our hearts ache to see you again. We find ways to pass the time as we wonder how much longer the hurt will last. We know now Heaven has another angel and we have our memories.

I will miss you, Andrew and I will always be your fave fan!

Although I hadn't seen Andrew in years my heart broke when I heard the news.

The first time I met Andrew he was 16ish and he showed up at the house with my sister to have my mom look behind his ear (she is a nurse). He thought he had a tumor. He obviously didnt but it was very funny and cute. After that Andrew was a constant fixture at our house for many years.

I did not follow his career but I was very proud of what he accomplished.

I will cherish the memories and you will be missed by many.

My condolences to his family & friends.
