    Marty will continue to live on in the hearts of all those blessed to have their lives touched by him. Although I will be unable to attend his service due to a wedding out of state, I will always remember my friend Marty. I was blessed that God allowed our paths to cross. I will miss his emails and humor. Much love Marty!

    I cut Marty's hair hair for many years and after I had to retire, Roland continued.
    They had a lot in common, talking about Louisiana and the Cajun food and then about their dogs they loved....
    Marty was a kind and sweet man and loved his family so much. He will be missed
    by everyone who knew him.
    Keeping you all in our prayers,
    Love,
    Roland and Barbara Bordelon

    Words cannot express my deepest sympathy for you my friend. I do ask God to comfort you during this time of pain and sorrow. I also ask God to keep his angels of mercy around you and to give you peace while he take you through your next journey. I want to continue to extend my condolences to you and your family, because I do know the grief of a loss of a love one first hand, but I do know that with God, you too will see that while we love them God loves them best. May you look to the heavens with a smile on your face and know that you have an angel watching over you. Thanking God for giving him to you for as long as he did and saying one day, you will see each other again.

    With deepest sympathy and Love,
    Mrs. Sandy Clements
