Dearest Lou, Louise and Ross,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of your dad and your whole family during my early childhood on 76 Salem St. I still recall the Halloween nights when our two dads took us kids around the neighborhood for trick or treating and how much fun we had. Ross and I were on top of the world as we sat high on our fathers' shoulders, excitedly going from house to house. Your father always made me laugh and your mom always gave me cookies (haha). I loved to play with Ross, Louise was my babysitter and I had a huge crush in Lou. Boy, those were great times, and I'll never forget them. RIP Mr. Martineau. Thanks for helping to make Salem St. one of my favorite childhood memories, and for raising three amazing people. Until we meet again...Diane (Cloutier) Bennett
