    I have such fond memories of my kind “Uncle Art” who was such an integral part of my childhood. My heart goes out to his large and loving family – especially my Auntie Lil, who has been by his side for such a long time. So many will miss him – I’m sorry he is no longer in your life – but the great curve of time will come full circle and you will all be reunited once more.
