Dear Shirley, Debbie, Tim and Jack, Our deepest condolences to Marty s passing away. Robert and I will him remember as the tallest tree on your island in Temagami, looking over the lake and knowing all the boats passing by. Maybe you find relief in the thought that the last years were no longer as pleasant as before. We are sure that he will find some people up there teaching them gardening , fishing and boating. Robert and Uli
