I’m so sorry to learn of Art’s passing. Although I moved away from Rolling Prairie decades ago, Art and Rosie are part of my memories of my childhood there. He was a friendly smile and was a good friend to my family. My thoughts are with his loved ones.

I have lost one of my best and earliest friends. We grew up together as neighbors, classmates, and church friends in Rolling Prairie. How I will miss him (my grade school boyfriend). Our families were especially close-always. Love to
Art's family, Doris Tower Miller
