My cousin was killed in a tragic traffic accident. Marty's sister, Kathy, added this comment to the family's ancestry page for Marty on 6 March 2015.
My brother Martin was born when I was turning 16, he was the youngest of the six of us and to say he was loved and adored by the whole family is a understatement. Marty was killed 12 days before he was to turn 10 years old and we were very lucky that we had the strong family that we had, it was almost as if my Mom and Dad just put their arms around us and held us, all seven together to get us thru it. We do not think of Marty as in the past tense, he is ever present with all of us, even after Mom and Dad have left to join him in 1993 and 2005. Marty went to St Victors school in Calumet City and was in 3rd grade, that is what his profile picture is from....his class, all thru the years left a place for him in every grade and when he would have graduated 8th grade his class left a seat for him in church....in his short life he made a difference and while I questioned God as to why he took my brother, I only have to look as far as my son Joe who was born 1 year later on Marty's birthday and then in 2012 both my grand children Madyson and Dylan were born (not planned by us but by God)on the day of his death 19 years later. It was Marty's way of saying "No more sad days Kaf"....you are right Marty no more sad days...this is the Story of Martin Allen Liesenfelt. Who will be forever missed.
