My most sincere sympathy on the passing of Martin. He and I were hired at the same time by the USPS as letter carriers. later i moved to the mail processing units and customer service and retired in 1962. I remember Martin as a very good coworker, in fact, one of the best at what he did. May GOD rest his soul and may the family find peace during these trying times.
