    We are sad to know of the passing of our dear Cousin Art Martinez. There are so many memories that we shared through the years.
    Our visits to the Martinez house when we were younger. His return visits to Michigan for Family Weddings, Graduations, and our 50th wedding anniversary.That was the last that we saw you and Janie 10 years ago. We continued to stay in touch with each other by phone or Christmas cards. Unfortunately, our health does not permit us to make the trip to the funeral liturgy.
    To the Martinez Family, and to Janie, our sincere condolence
