To Marty's family: He was a lifelong friend since childhood and also a brother firefighter who will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all during this difficult time. Know that while we remember all the good times, let us not forget that the Lord will now watch over him until we again meet. Friends and family will stand strong together at this time of sorrow. Nothing can replace the passing of a loved one, but our memories, thoughts and prayers will always remain. Sorry we couldn't be there but due to distance, it wasn't possible. God Bless you all. Don/Donna Ebhardt and family

Connie, I am so very sorry to hear of Martin's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this extremely difficult time. We have to remember all the good times as kids. If there is anything you need at all or if you just want to talk please give me a call 973-764-2141. Again, I am so very sorry. Love you, Barbara Lorenzini Shouldis

I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one. May God almighty father of tender mercies and all comfort continue to comfort you all (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). Please know that God has promised to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). Indeed we all eagerly anticipate the fulfillment of this promise. The Bible also provides assurance of a real hope of reuniting with our dead loved ones in the coming near future (John 5:25). At a time like this, the Bible truly is a source of strength. You can read it online and also learn further about God's purposes at www.jw.org
