I wanted to let you know our town Aspen Colorado every year hands out a red rose with the picture of a victim of that tragic day. I chose Martin and wanted to thank you for his sacrifice. I am sure he was a wonderful man, and hope you have been able to heal from your loss.

Martin and your family are in my prayers today, I pray for understand, healing, comfort and strength. May you be blessed today and everyday with the joy that Martin was a part of your family then and always.
