Rev. Ernest Martin Jr Memorial Fund

The night of Sunday, June 25th, the Martin family was in a wreck. Through his quick actions, Ernest was able to avoid a head on collision, but the Jeep rolled. While his wife, Linda, their two girls, and their unborn son survived the accident, everyone is devastated that Ernest passed away. He died protecting his family.

Linda and Ernest met when they were 18. She says:
"The years we had together flew by, and I can't believe that they are over. Please keep us all in your prayers. Just trying to focus on our babies like he'd want me to. Trying to figure out how to do life without him.  ...He just was always there for me from the very beginning."
