  1. Dear Uncle Art.. I will always remember your hugs and you funny personality. It was a joy when we could visit with you and your family. I loved it most walking into your little house with everything familiar so I could see and hear everyone's voices and all the memories could flood back into my heart. The newspaper and coffee, the teasing, liissaaaa, the pool, aunt Diana's funny faces she would make. I will miss you so very much.
