    Hi there, There’s no question that your world wide web could be getting net browser compatibility challenges. Any time I choose a visual appeal at your site in just Safari, it seems to be high-quality Sad to say, if opening within just I.E., it consists of some overlapping criteria. I just sought after in the direction of present by yourself with a simple heads up! Other than that, Terrific web page!

    Uncle Lou, you had a heart of gold and were an amazing family man! I will always remember those “Puckered Lip Kisses”. Please give my mom a big hug & kiss and tell her I miss her so much. She was very lucky to have you as a brother. Rest in peace Uncle Lou, you will be deeply missed by many. I love you.

  5. Debbie Jackson says:

    Uncle Lew you were my rock. I could go to you at any time for advice or to confide in. You were always there for all of us no matter what the need. It was so difficult seeing you failing so quickly over the past few weeks but it meant the world to me to be able to help care for you. I would have gone over there every hour on the hour if it was needed to help make you more comfortable. I have so many wonderful memories of you and I will cherish them forever. You took a big piece of my heart with you when you left us but it is a little easier knowing that you are no longer suffering. I don’t know what I am going to do without you Uncle Lew. Rest easy handsome. I will think of you everyday until we meet again. I love you with all my heart. Xoxo

    Uncle Lou always had a very special place in my heart always making you feel like you were his favorite niece and giving such big kisses. Love him more than words can say and miss him everyday. My heart is very heavy this year but I know he is not in pain anymore and the last 6 months was rough on him. He will forever be in my heart. Love you Uncle Lou your loving niece Billie Dawn Cain & family (Mark, Lauren, Sean & Jason). Lauren loved her last visit with you and even got to take a nap with him. I remember him bouncing her on his knee and will cherish that picture forever. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

    Lew was always nice to me, he was a kind man always willing to help out or lend a hand !! He talked about how proud he was of his grandsons a lot!! My best to the Martin Family, God Bless Lew Martin may he rest in peace.

  9. Donna Boyce says:

    I know you are resting and no longer suffering nor in pain. It doesn’t make it any easier. Heaven gained another angel. You will be missed dearly. I will always remember you telling all of us to “pucker up” whenever we gave you a kiss or whenever you kissed us. I love you with all my heart. Until we meet again. Rest in peace Uncle Lew. Love, Donna Jean

    Uncle Lew…..None of us wanted you to go but God must have needed you. You were always there when we needed anything. I agree that I don’t think you knew how very much you were loved. As devastated as I am, I can think of some of the things that you did or said and you make me laugh. Thank you for all that you have done for me my entire life. I will try not to cry too much because you wouldn’t want that. Know that I love you more than I can say. I miss you and I will think of you everyday, as usual. Fly high and give everybody a kiss for me. I know that you will be watching over us. Rest easy. I love you. Ox

  11. James Martin says:

    My wish is that you are resting and at peace after the suffering you endured. Although you will be missed I know you are in a better place. I also hope in life you realized the love and respect(although not always expressed) which was bestowed upon you because it was truly immense. Although I am saying thank you, there truly is no words which would allow me to articulate my gratitude for your 56 years of love and unwavering support no matter what the issue or the need. Please know there will not be a day in this life in which you will not be though of and missed. May you be at eternal rest. Love you always “Mikie” & Donna.
