    It is with sadness that my wife and I heard of Art’s passing. Every since I first met him when he married my sister Pat I thought of him as a gentle and kind person. Out thoughts are with Scott and Doug and his entire family. We now live in Florida so we won’t be able to be at the service but our thoughts are with all of you. Jack and Marcy Sternisha and also CJ, Ben, Amanda and Emily.
