Our condolences to the Martin family. Your Mother and Father were a very special couple. For many years they were part of our every day lives. Fishing, fiddleheading, antiquing, and a lot of talking. Whenever something went wrong at our house, the answer was “Call Porky” and he never failed. He always spoke about his beloved Carmelita and his boys. Every year I delivered potatoes to them and Carmelita would show me down cellar and make sure I received a package of fiddleheads or fish in return. We don’t say goodbye to your Mother, we say Adieu. Porky was right she was a wonderful woman. Dan and Judy Wathen
