Our prayers are with Art, Mary Jo, and family. What a pleasure it was for us to know Art for so many years and share such beautiful memories during our time as neighbors and friends in Fair Oaks. Your fellow Chicago buddy will miss you, Art, as will his wife Kathy. Here is to you, Art, and to enjoyable times with good "friends" and "Surf and Turf" at your New and Perfect Sea Shore!
