I have a fond memory as a child, we were visiting and your mom made us hot dogs while we John, Gilda, Cidalia and I told silly jokes. (I think Mike was a baby)

My condolences to Merces, Tony and the Martins Family.

Family; this picture describes that term exceptionally. The happiness on your face and the rest of my family, including my beautiful mother and second father, is what made this beautiful Sacrament of Confirmation to God an overall holy day.
YOUR smile, is one that I would see every morning. Before school, on the weekends, and when I walked through the doors of our home.
May you find peace in the house of our lord.
Thank you for all of the memories. I love you.

To My Queen;

Words can't describe how much we all miss you.

Today we said goodbye to you. You were our rock, a strong woman, a selfless person. Your jokes, always making everyone laugh, there was never a dull moment because I knew you would say something to make us laugh.

You never wanted much, the only thing you wanted was peace. My dear mother you now have your peace. I will cherish all the moment's, videos, pictures and all the memories we had together. Til we meet again my dear mother. Rest in the sweetest place.

Love you;

Mike & Gorett Martins, Xavier and Mackenzie
