Remembering Mr. Art, who added so much goodness to the world as a Mason. He enjoyed cooking MANY meals for all to enjoy. He loved the children at Christmas time as he served as Santa Claus. Our treasured thoughts will forever remain...

FAMILY and friends of Mr Art may your SPECIAL memories sustain you at this difficult time. Let the beauty of each new day nourish your souls and bring you peace. May GOD hold each of you close, comfort you gently, and carry you through.

In Prayer and with DEEPEST Sympathy,
