I am sorry to hear about Sixto (Mr. Martinez to me). I have many memories of him while growing up with Linda. I have always had a lot of respect for this man. My condolences to Shirley and his family during these days without him. May you feel peace as you reflect on your memories of him!I I rarely check the obituaries in Utah but tonight for some reason I did and happened to see his picture. Goodnight Mr. Martinez unless we meet again!
