    Marty was to us a once in a lifetime friend. We rejoiced with Diane that he slipped away, without pain, in her loving arms. As long as there was hope, he fought the good fight. As he told all of us, he made peace with God and surrendered his fight into His loving hands. Please send a donation to hospice in Marty’s name. You will never know the comfort they provided
