Mr. Martin's family,

My deepest condolences. I lost touch upon working elsewhere but my time with Mr. Martin will always be cherished. He always asked me about school, my grades, my daughter, and my plans for life. He was so thoughtful. I loved my trips to get him dinner and made sure I went the route he suggested, as it was fastest. He was a pleasure to know, even in the short time I had with him.

I hope he and his wife are together again, walking all the malls desired and catching up on the time that has passed.
