I met Mr Martinez when he & Dora lived across the street from St. Augustine Catholic Church. He would attend daily mass, recite the rosary and volunteer often at the church. He would tell me, “You want to know something? God is Good!! Yes He is...” and he’d smile. Rest In Peace Mr. Martinez. My prayers and condolences to Dora and all of the family.
