  6. Art, Jan and Lee. Please accept our deepest condolences. It was one of my greatest pleasures to stay at his house and meet you father. I loved playing cards with him and the great lines of BS he always put out. What a lot of fun he was. I will have some really fond memories.

  7. Your Father was very kind to attend his brother Raymonds funeral in Corinth. Our Oldest son, Nigel,was able to attend with Paul. I’m sure that was the last time either Bill or Paul saw their Uncle Art. I was happy that Nigel was able to meet him. Also that Donna found our Number recently and we were able to wish him a Happy 99th Birthday! It is encouraging that he lived such a long life.
    We wish you Peace and consolation in your sorrow. I am saddened that distance has kept us from knowing your family better. Please accept our Sympathy and Loving Prayers on His behalf.
    Paul & Ruth Ploof
