So sorry to hear about Arthur, I remember sharing a laugh or two with him the many days I spent hanging out at your house in high school and over the summers.

Carol, so sorry for your loss. Mark and I are so saddened by his passing. We saw Art a couple weeks ago when he came for eggs, and he told us about the cancer and failing liver. Our time on earth is so short, and Art made the most of it! Hugs to you.
Love, Mark and Heather

I am so very sorry for your loss. Art was a very special man and a major part of my life. I will always remember going to work with him everyday in the summer and riding on a milk crate in the van. On vacations Art taught me how to fish which was one of his biggest loves. He will live in my heart forever.
