"Janet and family, Sorry to read of Art?s passing! I lost track of the number of times he came to some place in E?burg and unlocked my car after I had left keys in it!! He was always so pleasant, and after a few times , he would pull up and get out of his car laughing. Under his breath, he was certainly thinking not so nice thoughts, I am sure!! Always appreciated what he did for me!M"
