Uncle Art , you have always been an important part of my life. It was great when you were at our house, but even better when I was at your farm. At the farm we got to ride your tractor, eat fresh corn, play in the barn, and ride the neighbor's horse. You even let me fly your plane. There are too many memories to mention, but I remember them all. Uncle Art, thank you for being a part of my life, I love you and you will be missed.

Uncle Art, we moved to Colorado when I was only 5 and I wish I was able to spend more time with you and Aunt Lorna while growing up. My memories of you are fond and vivid. I loved sitting on Dad's lap while watching you, Grandpa and Uncle Dick play pinochle. I loved your farm. I loved jumping from the ladder in the silo into the grain. I loved tractor rides and the taste of your sweet corn. I loved brushing Bell. I remember not wanting to leave at the end of the day. Once I took off running and you had to pry my hands off a ladder leading into the silo because I wanted to jump one last time. And that's where I find myself today. I'm holding on to you like the ladder on the silo and I'll never let go of my memories. I love you, Ric.

Uncle Art, I had a wonderful childhood and you were a huge part of that. Whether you visited us in Oak Lawn or we came to see you, I always knew it was going to be a great time. On the farm I loved the freedom to run and play, the corn silo, good food, and the tractor rides. Erin was so happy to have had the opportunity to meet you a couple years ago. Thank you for the memories that I will always cherish. You are in my heart and I love you Uncle Art.
