Today we celebrate the life of Martin English who went home to his Lord just a few days ago.

Martin is a beloved husband, father and grandfather.

I knew Martin through the WVIW Marriage Seminars. He and Karen have faithfully attended as volunteers for years. Together they have prepared and managed the food for the entire event.

A joy of these weekends would be time on Saturday afternoon when Martin would slide up to the piano and release the melodies of his heart. Not only an exceptional pianist, he was a loving man. And his love for these inmate couples could be heard in every note.

Martin will be missed and remembered for his gentle and loving ways. While his body has been laid to rest, I imagine him now sitting at a Heavenly piano surrounded by Jesus and a host of angels.

Play on Martin.
