Lyn and family, we were so said to hear of Marty's passing.  Mike had wondered last week where you guys were living now.  She was a one in a million lady.  We always had fun at Haggar Slacks.  I will always remember her as we were then! Young, crazy and hard working.
May God bring you peace as only he can.
