My deepest heartfelt condolences to the Price Family. Marty was a good fried througout our school years together. From St. Cecilia's through Scott. Lost track of him during the service years but rekindled that freindship with our last few fishing trips out of Rock Hall, Md. he will be sorely missed this year. Always quick with a comeback with his uncanny wit. Prayers go out to the Family during these tragic times. He will always be in my prayers as one of the Good Guys from Coatesville. God Bless, his suffering is over and he rests in the Hands of the Lord.




Marty is a great guy,  he is our good friend. For those who grew up with him, we keep him in our hearts and minds, always. We thank Joann and Bob who worked so hard, through tears and pain, to care for our brother.  Charles, Joe, and I grieve with you, your Mom and family. Marty is Marty, he will always be with us.
