    My deepest sympathies for the loss of Art. He was like a second dad to me , growing up on the Florida gulf coast in the 80’s was a blessing and it seemed we were all either out in the neighborhood playing football or hanging out at Art & Delores house all the time and always felt so welcome and had so much fun in the perpetual summer that is Florida . Whenever he would give the keys to the “Van” to Arthur , we just thought we were kings of the world riding around in it together. I’ll always cherish so many memories and fun times . Art was a wonderful dad, husband , friend and I am sure grand father as well. I am happy he is being laid to rest according to his wishes with his fellow veterans .
    Will meet again one day and there will be no sadness , sickness or pain only happiness and joy .
