Below is what Mike Martin (Tommy’s Dad) wrote about his son: Some or most of you are aware now. Yesterday around 11am my oldest boy Tommy left this life to be with the Lord. He had just turned 16. He was the most amazing young man. I couldn’t have been more proud to be his dad. He was in many ways a better man than I could dream of being. Two other young ladies lost their life in the accident as well. We covet your prayers! Me and Rachelle are devastated right now. He was my partner in music ministry and a true man of God. He was my wife’s best friend. I have no words to describe the emotions but we will prevail through Christ who gives us strength. He was the best big brother this family could have ever asked for.
The last Bible verse Tommy highlighted in His Bible app was this:
Romans 5:17 “Death once held us in its grip, and by the blunder of one man, death reigned as king over humanity. But now, how much more are we held in the grip of grace and continue reigning as kings in life, enjoying our regal freedom through the gift of perfect righteousness, in the one and only Jesus the Messiah!”
There has also been a Memorial Fund set up through their church, we know gofundme can be more convenient but it also takes a percentage of the donated money. If you would like to send a donation to the memorial fund it will all go to helping the Martin family during this time. You can send checks to:
15000 Newton Dr
Overland Park Ks 66223
Thank you all for your support and prayers. If you feel led please share this on your Facebook page.
Andrew Thomas who is Tommy’s uncle is the beneficiary.
