Our Sincere Condolences

I am so sorry for the loss of your wife, mom and grandma. I know you all will miss her. Your family are in my thoughts.

My prayers for peace and comfort surround this amazing family. And to Mart, our friendship has been one heck of a journey. I cannot remember life without you in it. And although I grieve and my heart is broken, I find peace and am forever grateful knowing that I was lucky enough to have 12 unbelievable years that was steadfast with your laughter, smile, grace, strength and love. A closeness that only best friends can understand. I always say, I am a better person because of you, and I already miss everything about you. Rest easy and peacefully my friend…until I see you again….visit me often and soon….
