    It’s with great sadness that I learned of Art’s passing today. He presided over my Mom and Dad’s funeral and has been a friend of our family forever it seems. He and Gladys both comforted me recently when I could not think of anyone who knew our family and our history better. He was a great friend to my Mom. He was many things to me. A Sunday school teacher, Pastor, and friend. I pray that God will comfort the entire family in this very sad time. He was a Christian who walked the talk.
