    I was deeply saddened to learn the news about Martty! We went to school from elementary- high school and later worked together briefly at the Shoe Carnival. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say and was extremely funny. If you were having a bad day Marty would brighten it by just walking into the room. My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family and all of his many friends!
