Not sure what to say?

Michele, I am so sorry about Artie. I know how much he loved you! When I would visit Jane's he was always there talking about you and bragging on you! We had some great times growing up and Artie was always there with a smile. I bet he is happy to be with your Mom now too, for I am sure he missed her! Remember all the wonderful memories and thank you for sharing him with all of us!

I would like to offer my condolences to the Abbott Family and share some words of comfort because life can be so overwhelming at this time. The pain, grief, and the feeling of hopelessness can be so unbearable. I hope you can find comfort in family and friends but most of all thru Almighty God, whose ear and supplication is toward the distressed one. Psalms 68:19,20

RIP Old Friend
May the raspberries be prolific on your side of the garden fence

Michele, I hold the best memories of your dad, maybe you remember as well? It was way back when he was courting your mom, we used to sit on her bed and watch her curl her hair, put on her makeup, you know, all the girly things, all the while listening to Tom Jones records. He would arrive all smiles, a little nervous, but looking sharp and ready to have a good time. They loved each other so! God bless you for your loss, but believe he is at peace, pain free, and with the love of his life....

I got a chance to talk with Artie at our 49 th reunion dinner. I was happy to find what an exciting and full life he had led. He we always a very kind person.
Thinking of you during this hard time,

Thinking of you Michelle-I send you Love and strength!Liz

I will miss my old friend Paddlefoot. I don't remember who gave him that affectionate name, but he used to walk like he wore paddles on his feet. I have been calling him Paddlefoot for 50 some years and smile each time I think about it. Artie and I had some wonderful times growing up.I remember the night Artie, Butch Lambert and I took the "Peggy Sue" all the way to Egg Rock and back. What a ride it was in the dark of night. I'll miss you old friend.

Our thoughts are with you Michele and families during this time of loss. What a sincere and wonderful man!
