Aunt Shirley and Family: My condolences go out to you all. When Mandy called and told me, the first thought that came to mind was what a blessing it was to have known "Uncle Arthur". What a grand person he was; they definitely don't make them anymore like him. Cherish the memories. Love, Cheryl (Mandy Hewett's mom)

Aunt Shirley & Family - I was so sad when I heard about Uncle Arthur. I hadn't seen him in a long time, but I will always remember how kind he was to me and his smile. I am unable to make the funeral, but wanted to send my condolences and my love.

So sad to hear of Mr. Author passing. He was a great man & one of the Best Shrimpers. Mr. Author always had that lucky horse shoe. He sure will be missed. They don't make them like Mr. Author no more I know there is a Drag Net in Heaven & he will be loading that deck with them Heavenly Shrimp. I know Rusty was waiting at the gate to great him. 🐕‍🦺 Thoughts & Prayers for Mrs. Shirley & Family. "Rest In Peace Capt. Author"🦐
