    We were totally blessed by the memorial service this afternoon. What a celebration of a life well lived and a legacy left. It is amazing how you can live next door to someone for 17 years and not really get to know them. I think a truly successful tribute to a persons life is when one leaves a memorial service regretting that they didn’t get to know that person better.

    But we do have memories of Art…shoveling snow off our sidewalk, offering us his trampoline for our young kids once his kids grew out of it (our kids loved that trampoline)…our huge unruly Dalmation jumping over the fence into Art and Maureen’s yard…followed by our next pet, Oliver whom we called Ollie and very often the neighbors could hear the duet of Ollie/Molly being chided to come in or go out….and more recently Art teasing us because it took us three weeks to move out of the house next door….a very good neighbor indeed, always looking out for our best interests. Always a smile on his face…

    Our sincere and heartfelt prayers go out to you, Maureen and the kids as you navigate this difficult hardship and loss. I just want to leave this one final thought…God is able…He is able to comfort you and heal you and sustain you…more than able…let Him walk you through.

    Mike and Geri Stewart
