    Marty , My friend and teammate. I will miss you so very much!!!! There is not a day that passes when I don’t think of all the fine memories we had together. Our travels in the Blue Goose ,our football days with Jack, Artie, Jim, Tunafish, Billy and the rest of the guys. Your trip out to M.S.U. with Sonny and Jack, in that blizzard,to see Nicky play. I remember how cold it was and you spent an entire half in the tunnel. You always had a smile and your quick wit always made everyone around you smile.We will all miss you!!!!!! Your friend always, Gene
