I'm in shock this morning after learning a life long friend is no longer with us. May you find peace Marty, may the angels in heaven help you find eternal sleep. I'll always remember you & your gremlin pulling up at Johhnie & Davids ready to race or be worked on. & then seeing you win at Cherry Hill. So much time has passed since then. I thank FB for helping us re-connect. You were always a friend & will be missed. May the lord keep & bless your family. You will be missed but not forgotten. Jason & Trish Franklin

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. This is one of the most difficult things we must face in this life. May it comfort you to know that others are deeply touched by your loss. But the bible assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken in heart and those crushed in spirit he saves. He also promises that we will be able to see our loved ones again. Jesus own words found at John 5:28,29 tells us there will be a resurrection. What a wonderful hope! He also promises that soon on the earth there will be no more pain, suffering and especially death. Revelation 21:3-5 We anxiously await the day when we will no longer lose those we love. May these bible thoughts bring you comfort at this most difficult time.
