  1. It was a pleasure of having Art as a part of our lives. He taught us how to work hard in his example, he taught us how to be bold with a gentle hand, and how to be humble through life’s roller coasters. Plus, we are now peanut butter M&M fanatics because of you! Miss you and love you Art. God bless you
