I'm so sorry to hear of Art's passing. Art was a pleasant and diligent worker during the time he served in the Appeals Office. Being one of the Aides (secretaries)for many years in that office, I remember him as always being pleasant and had a nice smile, even when I added more work to his desk. I pray God's blessings on Art's Family during this sad time. Berniece L. Posey

Shirley, Art was such a pleasure to work with and he was always so ethical in his dealings on the job. He was a great mentor and I learned a lot from him. He so enjoyed his travels with you and it was fun to hear about all of your vacations. He lit up when he talked about you and it was evident that the two of you had something special.
We pray that God will bring you comfort during the days ahead.
He was a good man and I know our Lord is greeting him with open arms. God bless you and Glenn. Fondly, Bernie Hashtak
