I received an e-mail yesterday about Marty's passing and I was very sad to hear that. Marty was already an employee at CTUIR when I first started working here. I owe it to Marty for convencing me to sign up for 401K in 1995. I am very thankful that she kept stressing to me how important it is to sign up for it when you are young. She told me that I won't even miss it out of my paycheck. She was right! It's the best thing that I've every done and I wish I did it sooner! I will miss Marty! I'm going to have to go play Bingo, in her honor!!!! My thoughts and prayers go to her family during this difficult time.

Marty was a wonderful friend.My last time sitting and visiting with her was at the Wildhorse. I was trying to see why she was winning all the time and all those machines did for me was take my money. She was one lucky lady and I loved her so much. R.I.P. my dear friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Wiley family.

I am so sorry to hear of her passing ... I met Marty and her husband, Earl when Wildhorse first opened in 1994 ... they were both a pleasure to serve and have around. I have always thought of both of them through out the years ... I hope the memories will comfort you.
