Martin loved the Lord throughout his life. Often when I visited him at Morning Side, I found him listening to the Bible or watching church services. The Sunday evening before the Lord called him home, I found him listening to Exodus. The passage from Psalm 31 was on his mind, "My times are in Your hands, O Lord." Even now, the next passage after that is being fulfilled in Martin, "Make your face to shine upon your servant, O Lord."

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. No words said can take the pain away, but you can find courage and strength to endure from God's word The Bible. I pray you receive the comfort you need. (Psm 34:18 & John 5:28-29)

I will be forever grateful that Martin taught me the true power of a meaningful hug. I thank the Lord for allowing me to know him and I send prayers of love and strength to his family during this transitional time.
