    To Auntie Eileen, Cousins Linda, Don, Barry and families. My deepest regrets on the passing of my dear Uncle Art. My fondest memories of your family vacation out to Vancouver, in the late ’60’s, when I accompanied you, as tour guide, on the ferry to Victoria. We had great fun! The train ride to Edmonton with my Mom, Easter 1966, when we stayed with you, visiting Nana. Topped off with wonderful 90th Birthday you all threw for my mother / sister Bea, at Linda’s Night Club. God Bless you all, in this time of grief!

  7. Linda, Barry & Eileen,
    So sorry to hear of Art’s passing. I remember how warm, welcoming and engaged he was to me when I was still new to the Cantina. He certainly is the patriarch of a very special family.
    Best wishes, Reye

    Eileen and Family
    We have such good memories of some very happy times spent with you and Art. Lots of Happy Hours on the deck, your wonderful dinner parties and, of course, our very special Caribbean Cruise with the two of you.
    No one will ever do ‘Mortimer Snerd’ like Art.
    We know that you have your family for comfort but remember that we are just ‘through the fence’.
    Much love from Larry and Sandy
