Default Richard Martinez

Suzanne called me this morning with the sad news that Richard had suffered a fatal heart attack during the night at the rehab facility. While Richard had multiple health challenges, he was doing quite well in rehab, so this is indeed a shock to Suzanne and their families. There will be a celebration of life service next Friday in Tavares Florida at 2 PM. Richard certainly celebrated life to the fullest extent, with the loving assistance of Suzanne, up and down the rivers on the QUEENS, TWILIGHT, SPIRIT OF PEORIA, NATCHEZ, BELLE and dozens of other small boats they found in their travels around the country. If anyone would like Suzanne's home address, please email me: wzc8491@aol.com. Our river fraternity has lost another good friend, but we are richer for having known Richard, and send our thoughts to Suzanne at this difficult time.

For those of you who have a 2014 TWILIGHT calendar, May's picture is one of mine. Check it closely, and there are Richard and Suzanne on the gangplank - quite appropriate!
