Dear Amy and family,
I was so shocked to hear of Art's passing. He was such a kind gentleman, and decent ;-) trumpet player. I had left the Lexington Bicentennial band some time ago, and would always look for Art in the concerts. He was a pleasure to have known, and I will always remember him fondly. His memory will be in our hearts, and his example has made us all that much better human beings. God bless you all, and know you are not alone.
