My sincere condolences to the Martin family. Mr. Amey was a good man and also friend to my grandfather Bob Knott for a long time before he passed. For many years Lilli, Darrin, and I got our Christmas tree at the farm and the we continued the tradition for the years to follow after Liam was born. We always counted on seeing Mr. Amey every year. He will be truly missed.
Keeping you all in my thoughts.
Adrienne
