    Marty

    Today we attended the memorial service for Marty Gallimore.
    There were many tears shed, but more than that the love for Marty and Betty filled the chapel beyond capacity.
    The fond stories and cheerful memories that were shared truly memorialized an outstanding man.
    Marty knew how to live life to itís fullest and he did. He never met a stranger.
    Everyone was a brother or sister to him. He was a very easy person to like, even love.
    I always felt very much at home when I visited with them. I believe everyone did.
    Marty was a person that gave far more than he took. The world is a better place because of people like Marty and Betty.
    I am very proud to call them friends.
    Wilderness Logics is one of the most respected brands in the hammock industry. Known for both innovation and unsurpassed quality.
    Also in attendance where two other greats in the hammock world.
    Both Dutch and Stormcrow traveled considerable distance to pay homage and respect to their friend and colleague.
    I know that Marty and Betty where pleased and honored to have them there.

    Requescat in pace Marty.

    I just heard of Marty's passing today.
    Was up north camping for two cold nights and my head was cradled by one of his down pillows. Seems fitting.
    Nice to hear that he was sent of with lots of love and admiration.

    Half my DIY quilts are made with Wilderness Logics down. What a positive contributor to our community! My prayers are with the family.

    I sure admired that fellow. I really got a kick out of the way he talked. I tried to imitate his sweet voice. My friends also got a kick out of chatting with him. Just absolutely enjoyed the heck out of listening to that man speak. I have purchased many items from his store quilts hammocks tarps accessories. Just really liked his gear and his presence on the phone. Real old school guy. Peace to him and his. Miss him.

    I just talked to Marty last Monday the 15th when he made sure to get my Tadpole Poly door kit and pole mod shipped to me before I left for a Manistee River canoe trip Thursday. Almost all of my gear is from him too, my go to guy. 1 hammock, 2 tarps and 4 quilts that I'll cherish and think of him every time I set up camp.
