    Betty and Family:
    I and Sue have known Red and family for many years. He always was there when I needed car repair at incredible price. He was always there to help with all the questions I had. His passing will be a loss to us and all the people he was connected with. We share your loss of a super person

    Betty & Family,
    My Mom (Josephine Martin) and my family has been connected with yours for many years. My Mom loved you “Rye girls” and had such fun with all of you. She would have been the first one at the funeral home if she were still living. She passed June 10, 2005. She would want me to contact you and let you know that you and the family and “Red” are all in our prayers. He was an honest man who did work at a reasonable price – he fixed my Mom’s car more than once and she had such respect for him. I only had conversation with you and he at your house on Linden Road a couple of times, but I, too, was impressed by his integrity. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
