    Dear Susan, (son) Dave & Ivry family:
    Please accept our deepest sympathy for Marty’s sudden passing. We, especially Mike, have many fond memories of Marty’s “entertaining” sense of humor and thoroughly enjoyed the times shared.
    May God, family, good friends and loving memories carry all of the family through these most difficult times.
    Our thoughts are with you,
    Mike & Trish Keeler

    You will be truly missed, You tried so hard to keep Billy, Frankie and me together with you. That was a promise that you made MOM and even through it seems as if you have failed, in my heart I know that each one of us loves each other dearly even though we don’t show it. You and Susan attempts did not go unnoticed. I am so glad that we got to spend quality time on Black Friday together, this meant so much to me. You will always be remembered to me as my big brother in uniform that taught we how to dance on top of his shoes. Love you always and forever your sis.
