Today I am sitting here in Florida, my last day. Been doing a lot of talking on the phone since hearing that my dad(David Martell) has passed away in my absence. My dad has been quite sick for some time now and just before my leaving became seriously ill. He wanted me to keep my original plans and go to Leadership, So, I did. In my absence, they had to take him off the breathing tube and within 28 minutes of doing so, he passed away. :(
I am returning home tomorrow, Tuesday and heading to the funeral home to finalize the arrangements that I have been talking to people on the phone about all day today.
The services will be on Thursday from 7-9 pm at Heald Funeral Home in St. Albans and Friday at 2 pm at Holy Angels Church in St. Albans. We will not be going to a burial as his wishes were to be cremated. Thank you all for your support thus far and looking forward. Unless something changes between today and tomorrow, then that will be what we do. The add will appear in the Burlington Free Press hopefully on Wednesday morning if you want to pay your respects. Thanks again.
Hugs to all.
