Our Dad loved to shop at Walmart late at night. He said it was good exercise for him and the store was less crowded at night. We would get concerned when he didn't answer his phone because he was still gone and it was almost midnight. Manuel & Verna, Josh 1 or Josh 2 would sometimes secretly drive to Walmart, find his car in the parking lot, sneak around the store until they found him and make sure he was okay without him seeing them, or so we thought.😉 We finally got wise and started using the family locator, we could pinpoint his location right down to the section he was in, at the store.😄 He decided going to the store in the daytime might be easier on all of us grownup kids. One day he wasn't answering his phone, again. We sent out the troops to try to find him but he wasn't at any of the stores he usually shopped at. He was MIA! So we had to resort to the family locator again. We located him on 7th Street. So once again Manuel found him without him knowing he was being followed, keeping a safe distance until he got safely home.😉 He told us he had met a young married couple earlier in the day at Goodwill, and when he saw them walking he felt sorry for them and offered them a ride home. He didn't think it was a big deal. He did what any friend would do, he gave them a ride home. He had such a good, tender, and kind heart.❤ We finally broke down and told him about our concern for him and about spying on him in person and with the family locator. He laughed and said, "Ahhh, my goodness, you did that, all of you? What did you think was going to happen to me?"🤔 We thought he was going to be upset but he wasn't. We think he knew all along but wanted to keep us on our toes. He said it was okay, he knew we did it because we loved him. After our confession he would call and ask if we knew where he was, and if we knew his exact location. He loved the new technology and got a kick out of giving us a hard time.🤣 We loved him for that.💞😘

You've been gone for one month now. I can't tell you how many times I've reached for the phone to call you, just to hear your voice and tell you I love you. I miss my time with you so much.💗

I have so many beautiful memories of our time together. One of the memories that stands out is our drive to Colorado City for breakfast. We decided to take the long way home through San Isabel National Forest. We drove by Bishop's Castle, Lake Isabel, and we got to see the leaves changing color on the mountainsides. I remember you saying, "I know without a doubt there is a God, no one else could have created something so beautiful". We talked, we laughed, and we cried as the drive brought back so many happy memories. You told me how much you missed Mama, hearing her sing and pray, but just sitting or lying in bed holding her hand is what you missed the most. We listened to your favorite hymns on our way through the beautiful mountains. Remembering all of the happy times we shared as a family at home and on vacations brought joy to your heart as you shared your thoughts, reminiscing of wonderful times gone by. We ended our drive at Mama's gravesite, it was bittersweet. 💔💖

This is one of the many memories I will cherish forever. I love and miss you, my Daddy, my Friend.❤

I will see you again in Heaven. 😇

Love you forever,
Wish - Louise

I am thankful that I got to know you and became close to you. The day I met you, I saw the strength you had for your family, the wisdom you shared in life and the love you had for family and freinds. I remember when I would walk into your room and you would say, "listo?" meaning was I ready to box with you. I am thankful for the bond we had. I know I will miss those talks we have had and the time we have spent together. You will be truly missed.

My Grandfather Louis Martinez Was The Greatest Man I Will Ever Know He Was A Caring Respectful God Fearing Man.
He Taught Me How To Be A Man Of God An How To Take Care Of My Own Family His Love An Care For His Family An Friends Was Like No Other If You Needed Anything He Was The Man To Give It If He Could.
I Am So Grateful My Kids Joshua III,Jeremy,An Amrie-His Great Grand Children Had The Opportunity To Build A Life Long Bond An Love For Him.
I Remember When I Was 9yrs Old One Morning After Are Regular Routine Of Breakfast At Country Kitchen He Took Me Quail Hunting Just Outside Pueblo To A Place I Knew An I Got My Limit Of 8 Quail An On Our Way Back Home We Were Stoped By The Game Warden An The Police As They Thought We Were In City Limits An He Defended Me Till They Agreed An Left Us With My Quail.
That Memory Will Stay With Me Forever As Well As Others.
I Will Try My Hardest To Live Up To What You Have Taught Me And Taking Care Of My Family As You Did I Love You PaPa An It Pains Me Everyday Not Waking Up An Talking To You But I Know You Are With Grandma Drinking Coffee At Peace.
Till I See You Again Grandpa

Uncle Louis was one of the most kind-hearted man I've met. Whenever Michael and I visited from Denver he was so inviting and friendly he made our visits so enjoyable. It was such a pleasure to listen to his conversations of his youth and his love of his family. He was so happy to take a drive with us to the farms to show us where to buy the best Pueblo chili. His love of life and family showed in the genuine smile he had. I will remember his smile 😊.

My memories of uncle are always of him having a good sense of humor. The last time I saw him in May we had a great visit he told me that when God calls him he's going to run away and hide; but God chose to take him in his sleep. When I was a little boy he always wanted me to sing "It's the Holy Ghost on fire and it's keeping me alive". I couldn't pronounce the word alive and instead sang "a lie" it always amused him. He always referred to me as "The Holy Ghost on fire". He will be dearly missed.

When I heard that Uncle Louie passed into Heaven, tears filled my eyes~
I remember so clearly, I was a child when Uncle Louie sat me down, he started to teach me his address. I was a little confused at first! Then he tells me that if I ever get lost, give them this address, 1519 E 13th ...! I felt so comforted knowing I had his home as a safe place!
HEAVEN is the new address... My new place to be safe and comforted~ See you there~!
Much respect, much love~
Your niece, Ruth~
I love you, Uncle~

I heard someone say:
"When someone you love becomes a memory,
their memory becomes a treasure."
I think this is so true.
Sometimes we don't realize what a treasure we had until we don't have it any longer.
I want to remember Uncle Louie as a treasure.
I wish I'd valued this treasure more. I am guilty of this neglect.

May Uncle Louie be rejoicing in his reuniting with Aunt Caroline. I'm certain that she was waiting for him with open arms.

With full respect, and condolences;
Esther D. Ammon (Martinez)

(Uncle Louie called me "East" - I don't know why, but we both thought it was funny)
