|Let the memory of Martin be with us forever|
A little about Marty...
Born in Trenton, Martin was a Trenton resident until 1983 when he moved to Maine and returned to Trenton in 1991. Martin enjoyed books, music, the great outdoors, cycling, and movies. He enjoyed traveling. He was an artist and book researcher. Martin taught gymnastics at the Princeton YWCA. He was a member of the choir at St. Hedwig's Church and the Church of the Incarnation and The Knights of Columbus. He was an avid star watcher and enjoyed working with electronics. An avid Ham radio operator, his call sign was KA1rrI and he maintained his own web site Dembrowski-Art-and-Science.com.
"I believe that the Holy Bible is the true Word of God. I believe that everything in it is truth and completely accurate. I don't know if it's biblical to believe that those who have left this life are watching us or can hear us, not yet.
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his
coming those who belong to Christ.
[1 Corinthians 15:22-23 ESV]
So I don't write to Martin, but I write about him.
I have just recently found my path in faith, and now that I have a small glimpse at what that could look like, I realize that Martin was far ahead in his walk with Jesus. Years back, I wasn't all that interested in his talk about God and Jesus. Now however, I have come to understand that he simply placed his trust in our Lord and depended on Him.
I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will
go in and out and find pasture.
[John 10:9 ESV]
If there's one thing I have come to understand, it's that God protects those who believe in Him and love Him.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together
for good,for those who are called according to his purpose.
[Romans 8:28 ESV]
Martin had great strength and I consider him to be one of the strongest people I have ever known. When he was healthy, he had physical strength, but his true strength was in his spirit. He allowed the Lord to work in him and through him. His true strength was his ability to wait on the Lord.
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
[Isaiah 40:31 ESV]
And for the rest of us who are left behind...
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
[Psalm 34:18 ESV]"
"Dear Marty. Today would've been your 61st birthday. I miss you so much. You will always be in my heart and thoughts. I'm so glad you got to spend the rest of your days together with me. Save a place up in heaven for me."
Just wanted to wish you a happy 60th birthday! Hope all is well where you're at. Victoria wanted to know if you live far away from here. Well it's both near & far. But someday we'll all be together. Love you brother.
"Hi marty. Merry Christmas and happy new year to you in heaven. You probably have an idea of how much I miss you. I hope that you are having a great time up there with mom and dad and Patrick and Heather. But most of all I know that you are glad to be with Jesus up in heaven. I love you for always and forever, love Sylvia"
"Hi Marty. I've been thinking about you a lot. I'm starting to get depressed again. I can feel it. I tried to fight it but it always seems to win. I've been sick a lot this past year. I got to get it back together again. I love you and will always miss you. Please ask God to look down on me and help me. Love you always, Sylvia."

"Hi Marty. Merry Christmas Happy New Year. I love & miss you. Please watch over us as we take care of things this year."
"Hey Mart! I can't believe I was on your site on your B-Day and Mom passed away the very next day. Then Megan's 1st birthday was the next day after that. WOW does this family have bad luck or what. Well like I said to Mom, Dad & Pat, save me a spot. Love ya Brother!"
""Happy Birthday" in Heaven Marty. I'm so thankful that your Dear Mother is no longer struggling and that she is with you and your Dad and Nephew. We will one day meet again. Until then we can connect through prayer. God Bless You! Love, Brian"
"Hi Marty Sorry I missed your birthday. Life has been very hectic but I never really forget. Mom's with you now. I see what Paul wrote and it seems like you were listening to him cause she went to be with you, dad and Patrick the next day. You know how much I miss you and dad and now mom. Please watch over us and keep our Patrick in line. I miss him too very much. Love Sylv."
"Happy birthday big brother. I love you and miss you. Please make Mom comfortable now. It's so hard to see her this way, I love her to much to see her in pain. Take care of my Baby Boy up there, I know he's a handful."
Happy Birthday in Heaven! We know you are living free of illness.
Happy, Joyous and Free. . . Please speak to The Lord for us. We will someday be with you too. God Bless You. Love Brian"
"Happy Birthday Marty"
I was thinking of you ( and how smart you are ). I know you are with Jesus and that all is well with you. Please talk with The Lord and as Him to bless Sylvia & your Mom with inner peace and serenity. God Bless You. Love, Brian"
"Hi Mart,I decided to look up your site here cause I've been thinking of you. I miss you probably cause your birthday is coming up soon. I wish you could be here with me. I'm still not doing well in keeping this house clean since you've been gone. I have no energy to keep it clean. I hope that changes..REAL SOON. I'm starting to get tired now so I'll say good nite. Love Sylv."
"Hi Mart. It's been 6 years since you left us. Where does time go. It doesn't mean anything to you or Dad or Patrick anymore, your time is eternal now. Make sure Mom is okay. Keep an eye on my baby boy for me until I come to be with you guys. Love you all and miss you all so so much. My heart is so heavy it's a chore to get up each day."
"Dear Marty, Happy Birthday to you my spiritual friend. May God Bless you in Heaven. You are missed, but we know we will see you again in Heaven. Save me a piece of cake! Love, Brian"
"Hi Mart, It's been 6 yrs. since you've been gone. Doesn't seem possible. Mom's not doing very well. I hope we can get some help for her soon. I wish you were here. I really do miss you & all the time we spent together. Even though it wasn't easy for the most part, I would do it all over in a heartbeat. Mom prays for you everyday. I know you ask God to watch over all of us. Love you, Sylv"
"Hi Marty, Happy New Year & Merry Christmas. Keep a close eye on my Patrick for me please. I love you big Bro."
"Hi Mart...happy birthday!! Your sight is playing Amazing Grace while I write something to you. I miss you very much. Life hasn't been the same without you & dad & the rest of all our beloved family members-Heather and Patrick. I'm doing much better this year than before. I was a complete mess but I know you are with Jesus & Blessed Mother now & that's very comforting. Love you Sylv"
"Happy Birthday big Brother!!! I love you and miss you. I will always look up to you as long as I live. I've learned so much from you here. Until we are all together again."
"Hi Mart:I remember what I wanted to say before. This is the first year I feel at peace with you being gone. I was getting ready for my day a couple months ago & the thought came to me that you don't have to suffer with that horrible disease anymore. I supposed God knows exactly what he's doing. I didn't nor could I accept it for such a long time. You are at peace with God now. Love Sylv"
"Hey Marvin, 5 years since you left us. So many more have joined you. It's just so hard to move forward down here after all I've been through. I keep smiling even though I've died so much inside. It'll be a year for my Patrick in August. I'll never forget that night of horror we went through. I just hope you welcomed him home and keep him out of trouble. Love you Big Brother!"
"Hi Marty, I was remembering talking to you about transistor amplifiers etc. . . and that I referred to you as SMarty! I can see that your sister Sylvia misses you very much, as do your other loved ones. I believe we will all see you again in the next. God Bless You. Brian"
"hi marty please keep an eye on our baby boy pat we miss all of you very much love you all"
"Hi Marty...I just want to tell you I remember what day it is. I was thinking about you a lot today. Love ya...Sylv"
"Hey Melvin JJ Saltmine! Syl just told me that she created this site for you. That's great, now I can visit you and my Patrick all the time. I hope you all are saving me a place up there. It must be getting crowded. Kaitlyn's going to have a baby girl soon. She is honoring Pat with her middle name. Love you Bro! Keep an eye on my Baby Boy up there. Tell him & Pop I love them!"
"Hi Mart...I'm here visiting you right now. I already visited Dad, Patrick & Uncle Joe. Goning to visit Uncle Mike & mom's cousin Sylvia also. There's not a day that goes by when somehow you don't pop up in my thoughts or life. I miss you so much. Love you, Sylv"
"Dear Marty. I was thinking of you today. I was really sad. I guess that will always happen once in awhile. Thinking a lot of visiting Maine too. Hope to get there this year cause I haven't been there since labor day weekend of 2006. Well I'll check in with you later. Love Sylv"
"This has been a tribute to Marty on Angels Inc's main site since his death http://spykillers.deviantart.com/gallery/29654105#/d3e3wrs rest in peace with Dad and Patrick my brother."
"My dearest Marty..I miss you more than words can say. My life will never be the same now that you're gone. It's been 4 1/2 yrs & I still can't get it together. You were one of the biggest parts of my life besides Tracey & her family, Mom, Dad and the rest of our brothers. Please pray for me & the rest of us. Love you with all my heart, Sylv"
