    You were an amazing man Martin and in the short time I was able to get to know you I was touched by your kindness and love for my best friend/ sister and Gabe. You will be truly missed.

    I think about you nearly every day mi amore and miss you like crazy. I read the emails we exchanged just now and tears are flowing … again. Oh how I know you’re missing Gabe yes mi amigo, it is a “cool” name but I know you’re out of pain and smiling down on us. When my grandmother passed, the song “Holes in the Floor of Heaven” was just released … I just knew she was looking down on me. Now, my dear sweet friend … I know you both are. Rest In Peace my sexy voiced man and know you were truly loved.
