    Mona and Lynn, Faye and Doug, Cindy and Gerry, Karen and Bob, Jeff and Shawna, and families:
    Today as you pay tribute to your Dad, may you find comfort in knowing that others are also recalling happy times spend with Uncle Art. When I was a child, we had so much fun with, “Jean, Jean had a machine; Joe, Joe made it go; Art, Art blew a…..” Your dad would pretend to be insulted and come after us. We would scramble, excited and panicked, but all the while giggling so hard. So many good memories! At this time of loss, take care of one another and find comfort in knowing that you are not grieving alone.
    Love, Debra, Ken and family

    My belated condolences to you all, Connie
