    Dear Martin Family: It breaks our hearts when death separates us from our loved ones no matter how young or old they happen to be. We are reminded in the Bible that there is One whe sees our distress and pain and has promised that soon death will be done away with…swallowed up forever.(Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 5:28,29) I hope in the days ahead as you reflect on the life of Donald, and the wonderful memories left behind, that you will also find much comfort in God’s promises to us for the near future. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I am sorry for your family’s loss. I always enjoyed working with Don in the real estate office. He was a great source of knowledge and great story’s. He was also a great friend for a rookie real estate agent to call on and inquire about real estate questions.
