Dear Deborah,
It is with deep sadness that we just learned of Marty's passing. Some people come into our lives for a brief time, but leave us with indelible memories. Marty was one of those people. He was open and honest, friendly and outspoken. He was the real deal.
We will always remember how he blessed us with his presence at church. It was a pleasure to know him and we share your grief. Pat and I offer our sincere condolences as we pray for you and his family, that the Lord will comfort you and shower you with his love always.
Pat and John Crutchfield

On behalf of the staff that took care of Marty. We would like to say what a pleasure it was. He was funny and caring . We all enjoyed the frequent "candy bars" he gave us and his big smile first thing in the morning. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Dearest Debbie and Thomas family and friends;
Please accept my deepest sympathy. I have had the privilege of knowing Marty for some 13 years and can verify how he lived his life. They say our eyes are windows of the soul and as I looked at his picture today, I saw a man of his word, always thinking and serving others, making promises to those he believed in. Marty did not know the word NO, for his success in life was succeeding in his promises, discipline, positive attitude, always a patriot of unselfishness. Dear Marty, live life eternally, in the Light of God's Presence that you earned.
