Condolence From: Diane Thompson
Condolence: Wayne & Nancy, Linda & Tim, Nancy & David- I am so very sorry to hear of Howie's passing. We unfortunately had lost touch the past few years but I have so many good memories of Irene and Howie - my dear neighbours on Halstead Street, -of the back yard neighbourhood BBQ's, of our trips to Quebec City and to the Maritimes and later trips out to Sun-On-The-Brow.
Thinking of all of you.
Much Love

Condolence: Howie and Irene were definitely a dynamic team that
we were lucky to know and work with on a number of occasions. They helped a lot of people in ways that most people knew nothing about. I remember working with Howie on one project and when I asked him why he was doing it he said "Life has been good to us it is time to give some back." He then kept on working and nothing more was said. The world needs more Howie Martins. We will miss ya buddy.

Condolence: Since the year Howie and Irene first arrived on Opinicon Lake, our family has grown to know the entire Martin clan. While only able to spend a few weeks each year with you, all of us that are part of your extended “Sun on the Brow family” will miss Howie terribly. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all today and in the future. May God’s grace soothe the pain and sorrow and allow you to remember the joy that Howie’s life brought to so many.

Condolence: We are so sorry that your family has to go through this terrible loss. Howard was one of a kind. He was the kind of friend that everyone needs. He had a heart of gold. He was always putting others before himself. I loved how even after all these years Irene was still his number one love. They had a love most of us could only wish for. Howard was always so good to our children and grandson. We will truly miss him. RIP Howard.

Condolence: We are so terribly sorry to hear of Uncle Howie's passing. His enduring legacy will be one of kindness and caring. He was always so welcoming to us. I will always picture him coming up the slope at the lake with a big smile and an invitation to stay for lunch. I hope that all the wonderful memories you have (and I am sure there are many) will be of some comfort to you at this difficult time.
