Lanman Funeral Home Staff
I had never met Marty, but have enjoyed a great friendship with her son Randy and I imagine that all of his best qualities were the result of Marty's style of parenting. From great parents come great generations that follow, I offer my condolences to Randy and Mary, his brothers and to Marty's family and friends.
