I’ve served Mr.Art for two years At Cranes Mill. So full of joy and such a cat lover. He loved his wife with every part of Him. Mr.Knutsen was a very inspiring person and I love him very much. I’d miss him the most. Although I stopped working there, he called me every other day to check up on me and I brought him Dunkin Donuts every other weekend which he loved. God bless him.
