    As Marty’s neice, I have so many, many fond memories of growing up on our family complex in River Vale. We were truly a unique, bonded family of parents, aunts, uncles, cousins. God truly blessed our large family with such a special life style. May she rest in comfort and in the glory of God. Susan Kerber Thornton

    Dogs. They were so important to our family. One St. Andrew’s Spring Festival, there was a basket of puppies for sale. I wanted to buy one. It cost $1.00. I had only $.50. My mother was the “fortune teller” at the festival. She said “No puppy.” Uncle Jack went to bat for me and loaned me $.50 to buy a puppy. Her name was Patches. Aunt Marty created the town’s Dog 4-H club. She taught us how to train our dogs. Patches won blue and red ribbons at all the local competitions that Aunt Marty registered me in. Finally, Patches went on to the N.J. State Fair in Sussex, N.J. Aunt Marty drove me, Mark and Patches to the competition. Patches won 1st Place. Patches also helped Aunt Marty train dogs in her back yard. Patches was trained in hand signals. She was just a little black and white mutt. Aunt Marty gave us such a wonderful education in canine management. Since then, and because of Aunt Marty’s love for dogs, I have never been without a dog. Thank you Aunt Marty.
