My sincere sympathies to Art and Ann’s family, and many friends. May they be reunited now. Art and Ann were obviously both very special people who were very loved. My Aunt Harriet always spoke so highly of them. I am so sorry for your loss.

Our deepest condolences to all of Art’s family; Also for your loss of Ann in March.
I am saddened and ashamed to have not kept in touch with Aunt Rene (my Great Aunt) and her family and to now be sending my deepest sympathies to you all. I have very fond memories of time spent in my younger years with Aunt Rene and Cousins Art and Ann. Their presence here on earth and in your lives will indeed be missed. Let your wonderful memories bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. I hope knowing others care and are thinking of you will help to give you the strength needed to get through the coming days.
