Freddie Martin Lives

I often share with people in the hospital that my name is like the famous orchresta leader, Freddie Martin.
One old guy said he would remember but the next day he called me Tommy Dorsey.
My name wasn't after Freddie Martin the orchresta leader but from a good friend of my dad's, Fred Barchy.(I'm glad I didn't become a Barchy)
My name lives on in my # 1 son Freddy Martin Jr. and I'm proud to call him my son.

Fred means peace maker and that's the desire of my heart for me and my son.

My prayer is that both of us will be faithful to our calling to bring the peace of Jesus into the lives He allows us to touch.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version)
