    You will be missed but NEVER forgotten! I was lucky enough to call you brother, but you were more like a friend. Growing up with you was so much fun! We shared a love for scary movies, and you couldn’t wait to scare me at least fifty times for weeks after. You were sweet, funny, compassionate, and you were fierce when it came to loving and serving our Savior. You were faithful to the end. I will always love my “Marty”
