    This is for the families of Art! Saddened me to see the obituary this a.m., as had lost touch with Art and family after his very dear friend, Ross Souter, died in 1981. He stood up for us in 1965, when we were married,and his son Ross was named after my husband, Ross Souter.

    My condolences to the children,remember you all as “little” children, we all loved your dad, Souter family and Zebedee family!

    It would be wonderful to meet you Mary, if that was possible, or children,as you now know my email. Note name is Zinter as I remarried after Ross’s passing in 1981, but have been widowed again!

    As memories of your dad evolve around me, I wish you all well!! Karen.
