"Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday."
"Wherever I go whatever I do, memories keep me near to you."
"My memories of you will linger on long after your footprints in the sand are gone."
In memory of the best dad a girl has ever had.

Marty was a man with a heart of gold who's love was infinite and kindness and generosity as deep as the sea.

Marty will always have a special place in my heart. He was one of my first friends when I moved to CA in 1983. Having no family or friends in the area he welcomed me to his. His door was always open and I can't recall a disparaging word ever exiting his mouth. He is a tremendous loss to our community and I'm sure a valuable addition to heaven.
