I am so sorry to hear of Arts passing. I only remember him when he was very young. He was very nice and had a great sense of humour. As you are all aware, we both come from a large family circle and did not get to continue to stay close as we grew and had families of our own, but we all think of each other and wish each other a life of happiness. It saddens me today to hear of Arts passing and my thoughts and prayers are with the family. God Bless!

Renee, Betty & families,

Renee so sorry of your dads passing. My condolences to you and your family.
