    We are so very sorry for the loss of this wonderful man and our deepest sympathies go out to your whole family. Art was such a loving, kind hearted man with a great sense of humor and he will truly be missed. Sending healing thoughts for the days ahead and hoping your sadness will soon be replaced with only the happy memories that your Dad/Grandpa (and great Grandpa) gave you all these years.We will always remember him with a Smile.
