Memories Timeline


  1. Shocked and saddened by this news. Art was such a wonderful man and so devoted to you and your family. I am glad to have know him. Now God has another angel taken too soon !

  2. Dearest Jane, I was just going through old photos, and I found the pix of your trip together with Art’s Mom in Tucson and our visit to Tombstone. I laughed out loud to recall Art getting his guns and holster from the car trunk. We all thought it was legal there, but the sheriff’s people quickly informed us otherwise. It was a perfect moment, but we felt badly that Art had to put everything back in the trunk! I could see Art just like the little boy in a cowboy hat that he must have been at one time. We are sorry that he has left us, but our prayers and our memories will keep those moments very much alive for us. I love you.

  3. Dear Jane, Our hearts are heavy. We are so saddened and shocked with the passing of Art. He was such a great guy and always enjoyed seeing you both at family gatherings. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Jane, you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I am saddened that he is no longer with us. Art was such a special man. I am so glad that I was able to spend time and listen to his story’s and jokes. I especially love receiving those genuinely tight hugs! Love the entire family.

  5. Jane, Art was the best: funny, loving, kind, and welcoming to all. He will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathy and love goes out to you at this time of great sadness and loss.

  6. Dear Jane, We are so sorry for the loss of your devoted husband Art. Art was both a great human being and a character. He was the first neighbor we met in the community some 30+ years ago, and we enjoyed talking to him along the trail as he walked your dog. Our Deepest Sympathy,
