My condolences to your family after losing such a dynamic patriarch as Martin. He was my mother's ( Esther Watson Tetrick Bunchy) first cousin, and you, his children, are my second cousins.
When the Artman estate was in probate Martin and I spent many hours working on the legal proceedings, here in Warren ,Ohio. He was always a joy to talk with and I am so sorry to hear he has gone. He was a bit larger than life; it seemed he could go on forever.
