My deepest condolences to the Martinez family. I am very sorry for your loss. I have many wonderful memories at the Martinez home. The several occasions that Mr. Martinez had ordered a boxing fight like a Tyson or De La Hoya fight, and I was lucky enough to be invited over to watch it, then also lucky enough to pick the round that the fight ended. Those were good times. I always felt welcomed at the Martinez home. Thank you for opportunity of getting to meet you Mr. M.

My condolences to Tia Martha and family. My kids and I would always see him at the Food King shopping early in the morning. He always had good advice for my kids especially my boys when he saw them in their ROTC uniforms. Tio Jr will be missed.
