To Gloria and family, I offer my condolences. Marty and I were friends and we traveled together for years in service to our company. He was renowned with all our customers and with our competitors for his knowledge and application of that knowledge in the pursuit of the best interests of the customer. He was a remarkable man, and I am saddened that he has departed.
