Martin; a man who entered our lives 14 years ago and will remain in it throughout our
lifetime.  A true hero, not only because of his ultimate sacrifice, but because of who he was; a
good son, a good brother, a good husband and a good father.  A man we were proud to call
our son-in-law.  As my son said, "On Mary 29th,2011, We took a big hit in losing Martin,
and we may one day recover, but we will never fully recover".  The day we lost him, we
lost a link in our family chain, but on October 22, 2011, he placed a link in our chain with the
birth of his son.  We miss you Martin.  You remain with us forever.
