Sincerest condolences and much love to Vickie (Layton) on the passing of her father, Lawrence R. Martin this week.

His friends believe that God has already assigned him to the grounds committee in Heaven and that he is already having a grand time trimming trees and bushes and tending roses.

He will truly be missed but not forgotten.
