I was saddened to learn of the loss of Mr. Martin. Many fond memories remain of the time I spent with the Martin family in my youth. While fishing and golfing come to mind it was the time he spent playing baseball with Robert and I that stand out the most. He spent hour upon hour pitching batting practice, hitting ground balls (and pop flies) and teaching us the game. I cherish every moment of that time and am forever grateful. I know he'll be missed. My family's thoughts and prayers are with the Martin family. God bless you 'Junior.'
