Dear Thea and Family.
My heartfelt condolences to you all.
I know that Martin will be missed by you all.
But he is home with the Lord .
We did not see much of each other these last few years, due to my own health issues, I miss seeing you too Thea, even if it was only for a few minutes in the Laundry room. Sending my love. Corry Vlaming from the Aurora Village Co op.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to you all. Also praying for our Heavenly Father to give comfort and peace.
I (John) have good memories. Many which always displayed his patience, even when stretched very thin, with Tim and all of our antics as teenagers. No need to go into any details ;)
I always saw him as a strong person who had a great, hearty laugh. He will be truly missed and always remembered.
