Christopher (Marty) Martinez memorial fund

On March 12th, we lost our one and only Marty.  An amazing father, husband, son, brother and friend, we are all so shocked and beginning to feel a tremendous loss.

We are all going to miss so much that Marty' shared with us - his incredible stories, delicious cooking, fabulous sense of humor and all the ways he would help us. 

Our hearts go out to everyone who is grieving, especially Maura - who lost her best friend and life partner - and Millia and Lila - who lost an irreplaceable father who made the best pancakes and took them on great adventures biking and skiing.

Maura, Millia and Lila are so grateful to everyone who has sent food and hugs and love. It is such a comfort right now to be surrounded by such a caring community of people. 

Some have asked if there is a way to contribute to future education costs for Millia and Lila so we decided to set this up just to make it easy for folks who want to memorialize Marty's life in that way.  All contributions will go towards Millia and Lila's future education costs.
