Not sure what to say?

This is to the Tessmann family. This is Rich Merrill. I used to work with Artie and Brian years ago around 1979. Just learned of Arts passing. So sorry to hear this. I pray God grants you peace and comfort. Through the years since I worked at Dagger, I also have had to deal with the pain of losing a loved one so I share your grief.

My sincere condolences to you and your family.

I always enjoyed speaking with him when he called in to Alro. He always told me to hide by the water cooler! He made me smile! He will be missed.

Very sorry for your loss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
