To Ruth Ann and the entire family my deepest sympathy on Art's death. I have lots of good memories of Art as he lived with my folks for a while. Art was always game to do anything and we had lots of laughs. I guess Art would be my first cousin once removed. Virg and my Grandmother Mae were brother/sister.
