I only recently met Martin just after Thanksgiving while working on my vehicle in my driveway on Saluria Place. He stopped to compliment me on my Christmas lights. He told me how he loves decorating for the season.
We talked for at least ten more minutes and I felt like I had a new friend.
This past weekend, as I was out for a walk, I spoke with a mutual neighbor who informed me of Martin's passing. I was deeply saddened by this news and just did not want to believe it.
You have my deepest condolences for your loss.
I pray that God give you strength to carry on through this challenging time.
