Dear Martin Family,
I am so sorry for your lost. I hope you can find peace and comfort in the promise God makes us. Acts 24:15 "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous". Again I am sorry for your lost.

CandleI wish I had known about this--I was in the Quad Cities when it happened. RIP cousin Harry.

Friends in Christ:
Harry's sister, Martha, was my best friend growing up. We were both the youngest in our family. We met in church and I became part of the family; we lived only a block apart. Mr. & Mrs. Martin were sweet christian people and raised their children Harry, Jennie, Frank, Gene and Martha to be the same. Everything was Christ centered. I learned so much and enjoyed the family love and fun. Harry was the oldest. Martha's siblings always took time with her and with me too whenever I was there. They were all kind to me in an era that people were not to "colored" people, now known as African Americans. Thank You Jesus, for Daddy & Mother Martin, Harry & Claudette, Jennie & Mickey, Frank, Gene and Martha Marie.

CandleTo all of you please know that you are in my thoughts. I so enjoyed caring for your father, I so loved the stories he would tell about his trucking adventures and also his missionary work during my visits. He certainly left an impression on my life. May he rest in peace.
