While my family association with Art was only for a decade or so, after viewing all the pictures in the photo gallery here, it confirms what a great person I was priviledged to know during that time. David and Stephen and families, Pam, and all other family and friends, you have my deepest condolences and sympathies during this time of loss, but I know Art will forever live in our memories and his thoughtfullnes, caring, love, humor and graciousness will continue to make our lives richer.

Art:
Thanks for being a great father and giving me the opportunity to call you dad. Your voice, your jokes and your sweet baby blues will forever be in my heart. You are loved so deeply.

Your girl- Justine
