I always felt welcome at the Martnishn house when I was a kid. This was due largely to the fact that Mrs Martnishn always did little things to make me feel so. I remember one time when she brought home from the hospital (where she worked as a nurse ) beaded baby bracelets with my and Donna’s name. I came across that bracelet just a few years ago and I was struck again by the sweet thoughtfulness of Mrs Martnishn - even 45 years later. God speed and peace for Donna, Dan, Steve, Patty and all their families
