Dear Martin Family, We only knew Mr. Martin from the pharmacy and from church, but that was enough to make it clear that he was an integral part of the community. We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss seeing Mr. Martin, on Saturday nights especially. You don't have to get that close to recognize goodness like his. Bless you, George and Nancy Hrivnak
