My father brother, my father best friend and my uncle. Right now, I am almost unable to imagine his face – his smile. I am almost unable to recall clearly his deep appreciation of his own life and the joy with which he appropriated everything that it brought to him. Because when I close my eyes, that pervasive image of him – supine, lifeless and his face cast in a black shadow – invades my mind and my only relief then becomes a gut-wrenching grief. I cannot stop crying for the man who represented everything that was beautiful in this world to me. My heart cannot accept the passing of my greatest idol – my father's most cherished brother – my eternal mentor – pa Martin  – a beloved brother to his sisters and brothers and a beautiful uncle who was loved and worshipped by his nieces and nephews – and most of all, his dear, dear wife mami juliana, as he always called her Julia.

Uncle you were and will always be an inspiration to myself, the entire family and anyone who knows you. You left a void in the family that will never be filled. 
While we mourn today, we also take comfort in the fact that your mission on earth would have been fulfilled. 
We thank the Lord for your life and bade you farewell until we meet again 
  Your nephew
