Reverend Jesse James Martin, Sr.

Today is my father's birthday.
He would have been 87 years old.

I love him.

I miss him.

 "...the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."
                                                                                                        -Job 1:21


  1. He taught us so much. I'm glad he was my grandpa :)

  2. Daddy was a kind and giving man. He never met a stranger.

  3. He brought joy and happiness to my heart. He never met a stranger. He always greeted you with a smile and love in his heart. He had so much knowledge and wisdom to share. He loved the Lord, his family and fellow man. I'll always miss him.

  4. A storyteller, avid learner, GREAT grandfather and the reason we are all where we are today.

    I'm thankful for his adventurous spirit and the love and encouragement that he gave me(us).
