Mrs. Martin and family...
We've never met, but we've known Neil for many years. We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Martin. It is never easy, especially for those left behind. What is clear is that he has found the peace that passeth understanding and his suffering is now over. Hang in their and take care of each other...

We are both so very sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with all of you, but we know he has gone to a better place and no longer in pain. Larry always said when the two of them got together there was bound to be trouble on the horizon.
