We have fond memories from years past of your family. Mine go back to when you'all ran the little grocery store on the square there in Burkesville. One of mine and my brother's favorite treats was the bologna sandwiches and cokes that Martin fixed for us there in the store on the usual Saturday grocery shopping day. Rhonda, I often think of our HIgh School days together. Jamal, I remember a couple of years ago the conversation we had and you told me that we were related. I still have the pictures and info you sent me concerning the Nation family. Nathan worked with Martin at SKF and considered him a great friend. We are thinking of you and assure you that God's grace is sufficent to carry you through the days ahead.

To the Trasher family,we send our sincere condolences to you. I worked with Martin @ SKF for years . He worked in the tool room and did repair work for our area in the Green Dept. He was a good worker and would be @ work about every day even though, He drove more than a hundred miles round trip from home to work and back home. I always appreciated that dedication. rest in peace martin.

We were very sorry to hear of your loss. I really wish that we could be there for Martin's service. Just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Jamah, take comfort in the Bible verse, "Absent from the body, present with the Lord". Martin is probably smiling down on you now saying, "if you only knew"... We still hope that someday soon we can come down there to visit you. Love, Sue
