I met Marty & Velma when I worked at East Fishkill Police and we continued our friendship when I transfered to Kent Police. Marty was a kind soul with a loving heart. He was filled with talent and I enjoyed the crafts he made and his numerous collections! He will be missed but I know he is with Velma now and is truly at peace! God will be getting a good one with Marty! Peace to his family! God Bless!
