I am going to miss you. Your sweet spirit and kindness was an example to all who knew you. I will miss our talks of the old movies we both loved so much. I rejoice in the fact you are now in peace. I will always remember your last words to me telling me you loved me and I telling you I love you too. ALWAYS!

Uncle Marty, I am still in disbelief that you are gone. I am missing you so much! I love that every time I think of you, I see your smile, I hear your laughter. I have so many memories, but some of my best ones was getting to see you over the past few months live your best life. The things you and my father got to do, was amazing. Getting to see you walk one last time, was priceless. And getting to watch you and my father pick on each other as if you were kids again, now that was definitely the best. Definitely gave me and my babies the best laugh. Your company was the best company my father has had, ever! I love you Uncle Marty and I will miss you dearly.

Every time I would see Uncle Marty we would go back & forth about who was going to punch who in the nose. & who punched harder. He remembered my childhood better than I did sometimes. I'm going to miss him dearly.
