We are so sorry for your loss! Art was a wonderful person and a great coach. We are so happy that we got to know Art and that he was our son's coach with CBL. We will always remember our weekly chants of "Go STORM!" He will be missed dearly.

Lish and family,
My prayers are with you. Please know Art is above looking over all of you. We may never understand why God choose to take such a wonderful man so soon from you, but God has his reasons. Just know that one day you all will be reunited again. My prayers remain with you all.
