    Ina and Family, You already know what a mentor and friend Marty was to so many! I consider him the GOAT (greatest of all time) — so kind, caring and generous with his time and sharing his advice and wisdom. He had a huge impact on my career while as my manager and afterward. He provided flexibility and help while balancing having my children and a growing career and was a sounding board for me when I lost my mother to cancer. I also have a forever bond of being with him on 9/11 and truly believe he kept me in tact that day and subsequent years to follow! I will cherish the fond memories I have of this very special man – Godspeed Marty and my prayers are out to you, your daughters and grandkids!

    We always enjoyed the wonderful times we spent with Marty in Delray Beach. Marty was a giving and thoughtful person and we will miss him. We are so lucky to have known him.
