Dear Pat and Karena, I have so many wonderful memories of Archie. I am so sorry I couldn't be there for the services. Thank you for sharing the lovely pictures. I will always love German chocolate cake, but I will love it, even more, knowing your father loved when mom made it. Hugs. Amy

Art, I will always remember you and my grandmother Nora keeping each other company while your sweet wife, Patty looked after you both. The two of you would watch TV and laugh together and make jokes. Speaking of TV, every time I see a wrestling match I will always think of you.
Your ever ending smile will be missed.
Rest In Peace, my friend.
