My heart is with you and your family.

So sorry. I watched the video and Marty's obvious love for his family and their love for him brought tears to my eyes.

My condolences to you and your family. The video was beautiful and very touching.

Cory - That was beautiful. Thank you for sharing that link. Marty lived a full life and it looks like he enjoyed every minute. I am sorry he did not get to experience grandfathering. Much sympathy to the whole family. I know your heart ached to be there. We are with you in spirit.

Oh Corey, what a beautiful tribute. A radiant love indeed that will continue to glow.
My prayers continue for to you and for all of Marty's family.

Prayers and love for all..................Thank you for sharing
The love lives on forever.
God bless you all

I am so glad Sacha was able to be there. Sending you so much love.

A beautiful tribute to a life well lived. Watching and reading all the tributes showed Marty’s character and gave a great insight to his spirit.
Thank you so much for sharing such a personal time Corey XX
PS: You are the absolute spitting image of your mother in the photo of her with Marty on his wedding day.

You have a beautiful loving family. I know you treasure every moment.
I’m so sad for your grief. Your in my heart. Love dear friend.

Very lovely video and tribute. Condolences to the Amaro family. Corey, take time to grieve your loss. Life is never the same for us when a loved one passes but with time, the heart heals even though the void prevails. God said, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted". Take the higher ground and you will be comforted. When my uncle passed away, I didn't think that life without him would be possible since we all loved him so dearly as well as my parents. But here I am, able to think about him and my parents with joyous memories. Take care, {hugs}.

Dear Corey, I am so very sorry, hugs always.

Goodbyes are always hard, but tender.
So glad Sasha could represent you there
and be there for the family.

Chère Corey,

May these memories bring you and your family a bit of comfort throughout the years to come. Thank you for sharing such a moving moment in your life; let us all hold our loved ones close for, we never know.

Stay strong, sit with your feelings and know you're not alone.


No Words to express the loss of a sibling. I send you my many Angels who have crossed to bring Marty HOME. And, I send you my Love and Prayers during this time of healing. I know your Mom is surrounded by most fantastic Family and Friends, but if you have a special request that I could deliver to her.... please let me know, as it would be my pleasure to assist. Love to you, Vicki

What a beautiful tribute in word and pictures to your brother Marty.How lovely that Sacha was able to be there to represent you and your family too.Marty lived a blessed life among family and friends,in time only the happy memories will surface to the top.May he rest in peace.Thank you for sharing this sad time with us all.

Oh Corey, I'm so sorry...

What a man your brother Marty was! He sounds like one of a kind. I’m so sorry for your loss of him on this earthly plane.
I know your dad is there with open arms and the biggest smile.
The video made me cry and cry and I didn’t even know your brother but he sure seems wonderful.
Thank you for sharing him with us.

Oh Corey I feel like I’ve known you known you and your family for years. Being an only child, I really can’t imagine your family gatherings so I join yours in a virtual, imaginary way. I am so sorry for your loss. I also ache for your Mother as i understand there is no loss like the loss of a child. So glad Sacha could be there. Continued prayers of peace for you and your family, your Mother, and Marty’s family who I’ve come to know through the video. What a tribute♥️

Dearest Corey, my heart is with your heart. I send you prayers and always, love.

Wow, Corey! What a lovely tribute. I now feel like I knew Marty, a remarkable husband and father. Your family is closer than any I know, and the love is palpable even to us on the outside. I know you treasure all your family memories, and this video keeps the love alive. I'm so sorry for you loss. Wishing you love and healing. Patty

Thinking of you and your family with love. May your memories of Marty comfort you all.

Thank you for sharing such a sacred family experience. This video, the comments left by friends and loved ones, and the memories of Marty have lifted those who never had the blessing of knowing him personally. May you feel only love as you remember your dear brother.

Thank you for sharing the wonderful tribute to your brother, Marty. From the photos and messages he was a devoted family man. It must have been hard not to be there in person for the funeral but such a blessing that Sacha could be. I send condolences to you and your whole family.❤️

Our hearts go out to you and yours. It’s a difficult time but, you will meet him again in heaven.

I'm sending up prayers for your hearts to be comforted. I have watched the video. "Take It To The Limit" is a song that means a lot to my life-long friends and I. Many of them have passed now, so when I hear that song, it brings many memories back to me with happiness and also the sadness of our last partings. It looks like your brother lived a very full life with much love and joy in his heart and in his family. I guess we can't ask for more than that love and closeness, and I know that they remain. even after the last goodbye.

Thank you for sharing a little bit of your brother Marty's beautiful life with us. How lucky you all were to have shared it with him. Sending you peace, hugs and love.

Many hugs to you and your family, Corey! So glad Sacha was there and that you were, as well, via video. Your love for your brother will live forever in your heart. Take care of you!

I, too, am glad that Sacha was able to be there, but I know you must have ached to attend, too.

What a beautiful tribute to Marty. My sincerest condolences to your family; may the Good Lord bless and keep you all. 💜

Corey, what a beautiful tribute to your brother. How meaningful it must have been for Sasha to be pallbearer and for you to be there in video. Yours is a wonderful and caring family that is bound by the love you share in good times and difficult ones. I am glad that you were able to spend such a long period of time with your Mom in Willows last spring during the beginnings of the pandemic isolations. Being there to support her and to support Marty as he went through those months of his journey was a great benefit for all.

Lovely and loving memories.....JP

I am just now reading of your brother Marty's passing. My deepest condolences, Corey. May the soul of this faith departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

It’s been a while since I’ve checked into your blog and I see the passing of your brother. He obviously had a full life and was much loved and loved. And when it is all said and done that is the richest gift of all. In the video there is a shot of Marty as a little guy on a little riding tractor. Oh my there is a resemblance to little Gabriel. That’s how families are they carry on. What a rich heritage your family has!
I didn’t know the man but found myself crying thru most of that video and then this came to me from I Corinthians 15:55. Oh death, where is thy sting? Oh grave, where is thy victory? Because death is like a sting to the heart that words can hardly convey. But thanks be to God who gives us the victory thru the Lord Christ Jesus. When you read the whole chapter hope arises because you all will see him again! In the meantime he will be missed.
Carry on Amaro family, carry on. Continue to live life well.
Special condolences to your Mother. May she find comfort and peace in the midst of her grieving.
