    The sadness we feel is tempered by the knowledge that you and Mom are together after being separated for so long. As Mike told me, “Grandpa can finally hold Grandma in his arms”. We will always miss you, but the lessons you taught us by word and example will go on. Thank you, Dad, for being my dad.

    Love you …. Celia

    The hearts of all of the extended Martello family of Seneca Falls, NY are heavy today. You were certainly the kind of person who lifted everyones spirits and were always a pleasure to be around. Your outgoing and adventurous personality inspired many to live each day with vigor.
    May you rest in peace,
    Mark Martello
