Mary was a wonderful person. There were a few times after the Golf for a Future Tournament that we would meet up with the guys and have dinner. Tommy would tell mom not to drink to much and she would tell him to be quiet.

What a strong person she was to see her family pass before her.

GOD bless her.

G'ma Martinez was a very special lady. She and I seemed to have a special kinship during the time I was a member of the family. I will cherish the memories I have of her and will be forever grateful that I knew her. Rest in peace, g'ma, you deserve a good long rest.

Dearest Beverly, Erika, Sean, Robert, and Family, It is difficult to put all my thoughts into words that fully expresses how much I miss my Auntie Mary and just how much she was loved. I am truly grateful for her presence in my life and all the wonderful times my sisters and I shared with Aunt Mary.
I will miss her sweet smile, her laughter, her loving spirit, and her funny "descriptive words" that
made us all breakout in laughter always!! The beautiful memories of my Aunt Mary will live on in my thoughts and in my heart, never to be forgotten.
Aunt Mary's family was very important to her and she loved her family so much. Her thoughtful love she gave so freely to all of us will go on living through her loving family. Mary's love is the beautiful gift she left to all of us and I will cherish her love throughout my life.
Aunt Mary is now in that Heavenly Place welcomed with open arms and reunited with her
Heavenly Family in eternal peace.
Rest in Peace my Sweet Auntie, I will miss you like crazy! God Bless You and I love you so.
Your Loving Niece, Loretta

When I first met Mary
Erika was introducing me to her Family as her boyfriend..... she immediately knew I was gonna be the one to sweep Erika off her feet and be her husband. She welcomed me into her family with loving arms . She told it how she saw it pulled no punches and spared no feelings and I loved her for that.
She was a great person and I am proud to have known her over the past 8 years she meant the world to my wife and I and she will be missed.

love you Mary.
