My deepest condolences to Vangie and the family on the loss of your beloved son, Fernando Samuel Martinez. May he rest in peace ?✝️

Ms. Vangie, I am so sorry for your loss. I was shocked when I found out Sammy had passed. I liked working with him in the Credit Department, he was a hoot and his antics always made me laugh; he was a good kid with a kind heart and I will always remember him that way. My thoughts and Prays are with you and your family at this difficult time. Amber Jara

Damn bro I remember sitting hours and hours around the table playing Game Of Thrones. Who knew it would be a time where we get to cherish something “we” did together. I’ll never forget it the time where we left the board out for a week just so we can get back to it the next weekend.
