Geri, we are thinking of you and your entire family as all of you are dealing with the loss of a wonderful man. We too are grieving the loss of Art. As we think back, we remember him as always being there for his family and friends and always willing to help. As hard as it is to lose a loved one, the memories and feelings we have can never be taken away from us. Each of us have so many beautiful memories we can reflect on which will help keep Art alive in our hearts.
With love,
Pete & Karen
