I want to extend my deepest sympathies to Pat and her family on Art's passing. I remember when Mom passed, Pat and Art stopped by our table--it was donut Sunday after church. Such good Florence friends. Nancy, I will always remember you, too, since we are the same age.

Pat and family,

So sorry to hear of Art's passing... we certainly enjoyed our conversations when you two would come into the office. Pat you stay strong and one day you will be together again. May Art rest in peace !!

Dear Pat and family, Les and I are sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Art and the good conversations we had when I would see him at County Fair. He was a great man and will be missed by many. Bev and Les Kettwig
